    I like the Beal sewn prussik a little more than the sterling if you have the opportunity to put your hands on both. I can't vouch for how it grabs on super skinny ropes though it should work at 5.5mm. I think the strength rating is a lot higher than the sterling too.
    .....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

    I have the Beal prussic as well and you're right that it's stronger. 22kn for the Beal and 16.4kn for the hollow block. However, the hollow block grips and releases better on the 6mm and just about every other rope/cord I've tried it on. It's heat resistant as well.

    For alpine and ice climbing I use a 70m Mammut Serenity 8.7mm dry rope and I'll bring a 7mm tag line if I need the double rope rap. I love the rope. It's really light and easy to manage. It's about 2 years old and still going strong.
