Topic - Prusik loop cord diameter for 10mm dynamic rope?

Alan_on_top - on 19 Jul 2014
Dear All,
I just bought 6mm cord to make prusiks loops and realised my old ones are 5mm. There are lots of conflicting opinions online about prusik cord diameters e.g. should be 50%, 70% of single climbing rope. Before I chop it up, can someone testify that 6mm is good, in both prusik knot and kleimheist for abseiling backup and prusik for rescue/belay escape, on a 10mm rope?
Thanks.
