Great Light Weight Rappel Device
Perfect way to lighten up your gear while providing the protection you need for your descent. Added hook is great for adding friction and slowing your descent with smaller diameter rope.
For playing with small strings
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
When using undersized ropes for rappelling this is the best device imaginable. the standard figure 8 is great for lowering ones self, however the added hook allows for the user to apply more friction without a second device. It also allows for easy mid rap tie offs. If you hike/explore with a skinny rope in your bag for the just in case scenario this is the perfect light weight compliment to it.
You can purchase this Nano 8 as part of the 4-piece rappel kit here.
Will this work well for a double strand rappel with an 8mm rope (Beal Rando)? Or is it too small?
what size ropes does this work with? it says low diameter, but how high does it go?
This has a range of 4.0mm to 11.0mm for ropes.
