This device is better than the piranha, but I cant say Im a big fan if the petzl piranha to begin with... Many friction settings, it excels with a bigger ear hook to add friction mid rappel, and the option to use the slot with a carabiner block is nice. The rubber grommet that holds the carabiner in place, however, melts quite easily from a long or fast rappel. I like the big opening of the device because it makes for a smoother descent if using to 2 strands to rappel. Would give it a higher rating if it were symmetrical or the grommet didnt melt so easily.
