    Details

    Because canyoneering ropes come in all sorts of sizes.

    One rappel might have a skinny static line while the next rope is pretty beefy, and the Kong Oka Descender will work either way. Not only does the Oka's original design accommodate ropes of all sizes, but also lets you customize the friction while you descend. This easy, versatile device is so safe and secure that Kong also recommends it for rigging rescues.

    Glorified Piranha

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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.
