Before the ATC was cool.
The Super 8 Belay/Rappel Device is Black Diamond's original device for Search and Rescue professionals, and it makes an excellent addition to any hipster-esque climber's rack. Its lightweight, compact shape is an ideal choice for minimalist climbers, as well as a tuck-away lifesaver if you drop your primary device at the top of a route, right before the rappel.
- Compatible with 8.1mm double ropes up to 11mm single lines

Holds up well
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Have used these a ton and am impressed by how long they hold up.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Although I am new to climbing, I would consider this to be a respectable piece of equipment. It is a little bit bigger than I expected but this is good, as it is very easy to run rope through.
I love to set a top rope and repel down for some climbing. Black Diamond makes a beautiful one you can trust.
