SMC Mountaineering Figure 8

Bryce’s take: 

Really like this one - compact and smooth.


Easy to rig and handle when wearing gloves, this new compact and lightweight descender has smooth action on belay or rappel. Made with high quality aluminum for optimal strength to weight ratio. Hard coat anodized black for durability and extra resistance to wear and abrasion. Also available in anodized blue for those looking to add some color to their gear rack.

Works well with either single or double ropes from 8mm to 12.5mm. Additional friction is gained by increasing the number of wraps. The carabiner hole can be used as a belay plate.
