Premier Sponsor:


The lightest of our line of rescue descenders, this is a traditional figure 8 design without ''ears.'' Machined from solid aluminum bar, this descender is hard-coat anodized to provide maximum abrasion resistance and therefore ideally suited for heavier duty or repetitive rappelling situations. The Figure 8 will accept a variety of rope sizes from 8 mm to 12 mm, either single or double. The extra hole allows you to be clipped in while rigging a rappel, a definite plus when working with icy ropes or when wearing heavy mittens.

SMC/Russ Anderson Figure 8 1 out of 5 stars

Review by: jlcatala, 2011-12-31

We bought 8 SMC/Russ Anderson Figure 8. They were put into service in October 2011. 4 have deteriorated showing tiny cutting edges.- Is this a manufacturing defect?
