In Love

In love with the black diamond super 8 belay device. It’s honestly the best option for rigging a contingency when canyoneering. Lasted a handful of canyons without much wear at all!

Old School Tech is sometimes the best

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

absolutely great piece to add if you are repelling regularly. I bought this to save my ATCs a bit of wear on all of my descends. Unlike my ATCs i have yet to notice any rope rub on this device from any quick drops or speedy descents into unknown caves or canyons.

Canyoneering

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this device to be my canyoneering do it all device! Static blocks, and rappelling mainly. Its lightweight and from a company I know I can always trust with technical gear like this. I am a bit worried about my rope fitting through double stranded for a static block but we'll see, I can use it to rappel if so.

great device for the price.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I bought this to ease up the wear and tear on my atc's when repelling. This device gets the job done. Super light, solid construction, by a manufacturer that you can trust. The capability says it's good up to 11mm single line. I've had trouble on double lines at 9.8mm, so that's something to think about as well.

Holds up well

Have used these a ton and am impressed by how long they hold up.

Certainly

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.

Climb On

I love to set a top rope and repel down for some climbing. Black Diamond makes a beautiful one you can trust.

Thanks for the first review on this item, David!
