Made by Petzl, the square shape of this Figure 8 reduces twisting of the rope and the formation of a girth hitch while rappelling. The smaller hole can be used with thin ropes if necessary or as a belay plate. Maybe be substituted with the D01 which is anodized and has the antiburn grip.
  • Silver color
  • High-strength forged aluminum.
  • Weight: 100 g
  • Use with ropes 8-13mm
*NOTE: Figure 8 descenders tend to violently twist and kink the rope during rappels, increasing the wear on the rope, especially between the core and the sheath of the rope.  This twisting and kinking suggests early retirement of the rope.  Likewise, these descenders are very small and do not dissipate heat very well.  High speed rappels are discouraged with Figure 8 descenders.
