I bought a 10m stactic tied it to the roof of my shed and kept practicing untill it felt I completly understood how two prussicks work. I have also tried garda hitch however thats not that flash can twist a bit. Now every so often when toproping I will prussik to the top with ease. I hope you dont but maybe one day you may need to know it fast. Good luck

There's a trick involving a sling and a biner wrapped around the rope, which works heaps better than prussics. Check it out in a book somewhere, I won't waste everyones time by using a paragraph to describe something which needs one simple diagram.

That'd be the one. I don't mind prussicking with those things, its halfway to jumars.
