Black Diamond Super 8
Whether you're a retro climber trying to relive the glory days, or a search and rescue professional who needs a versatile belay/rappel device, the Black Diamond
Super 8 is specialized for a myriad of different situations. Efficient and smooth when used as a rappel device, the Super 8 evenly dissipates heat and utilizes less friction than a tubular device. When used as a belay device, it is important to note that the figure 8 requires more force by the belayer to arrest a fall, and should be used accordingly. While the figure 8 is a useful belay and rappel device, it is important to match your equipment to individual circumstances and recognize that every piece of climbing equipment has relative strengths and weaknesses in specialized situations. Ideal for caving, search and rescue, and trad climbing, the Black Diamond Super 8 is an amazingly useful rappel and belay device ideal for a large number of climbing techniques and situations.
