good desender23 May 2014good device used on SRT 80m pitch also good service from climbing anchors
More options than the 4 bar rack.By: Colinwalks on 30 January 2014A large rack without hyperbars, which limits its uses. Functions on single ropes with medium to light loads. Can handle larger loads on double ropes. Much easier to lock off than the 3 or 4 bar. Does not twist ropes and very durable. There are cheaper, smaller, lighter options with more control and options.
Awesome deviceBy: Chris Curtis on 27 May 2011As a keen canyoner and caver the rack works great on SRT or DRT. It's also great with muddy ropes or thick ropes. Much lighter than an aluminium bar rack and dissipates heat well. Easy to lock off when I take tonnes of pics while on rope.
Excellent all round descenderBy: Luke on 5 October 2010This descending device is great for all uses - I find it especially useful when canyoning, as you don't need to unclip it from your harness and risk dropping it, like you can do with other descenders like a figure 8. The 6 bars allow you to set the amount of friction you want, so you can go at your own pace down the rock. The only problem I have with it is that it's kind of heavy for those routes where you have a lot of gear.
