This classic figure of eight style descender is suitable for a range of vertical applications and can be used on ropes from 9 to 12mm in diametre.
The tried-and-true design remains a popular descender choice, especially as a backup or cost-effective spare for friends.
Ideal for use as a figure 8 block, a form of releasable rigging which allows an abseiler to be lowered if they become stuck on the rope.
(Note: heavier canyoners or those using thinner ropes may find they need additional friction if using a figure 8 style descender. Ensure you understand how to utilise tools such as the Z-abseil (aka: Z-rig / Z-rappel) to add friction while descending.)
