Review 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: pisslord, 2004-10-11


Come on, it's a figure eight! You can't go wrong rapping off of one of these, but I wouldn't belay with one, nor would I particularly want to be belayed by someone with one. If you haven't used one for rapping though you have to give it a shot. I always carry one locked in a locking carabiner on my gear loop just in case I leave my other rappel/belay device on the ground and don't realize it until I have broken down the toprope anchor and set up the rap.

Good for overall rappelling. Light and strong. Will twist rope like all figure 8 devices. Does not dissapate heat as well as the Black Diamond Super 8 or Rescue 8. I've noticed that this divice wears faster than any of the other figure 8 devices I use.

Good straight forward belay/rappel device and works well for both. Beginners should learn on something akin to this first under supervision.

8's are always good for adding twist to your rope :(

This is a good figure 8 for rappelling or belaying, although i do like black diamond figure 8's better because the non-oval bottom, although most figure 8's all work the same.
