This Super 8 is very good. The paint wears out after ten or fifteen long rappels but those who don't mind a little "battle" scar will love this device. Definite buy if you don't own a Super 8.
This figure 8 can be used as both a regular figure 8, or you can feed the rope though the small hole and use it as an ATC-style belay device. It's kind of thin, so I wouldn't choose it for a heavy-use rappel device, but for occasional use the weight savings are worth it.
Fantastic descender, simple but elegant. Easy to lock and unlock when on the rope, Can be used with a combination of items for additional tools, lowering, locking, etc.
