Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Devil Is In The Details I got this figure 8 for Christmas as a stocking stuffer (climbing family, what can I say) and I have to say this really is a quality piece. I've use this kind of device to rappel before and I have to say I like it better than any other kind of 8. The kind of squared off oval shape really locks the rope in place and it slides effortlessly without being too fast if that makes sense. Also this thing is nice and light, a great way to shave a few ounces off of a rack. Overall an excellent product, and while it's near impossible to mess up a figure 8 there are ways to perfect it and I think this might be pretty close to perfecting the simple 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best basic eight The oval design is the key thing here. If your new to rappelling or prone to being a klutz this thing is great. the oval design makes it much harder for the rope to girth hitch/ larks head when you fall upside down and or do something stupid. we use these when teaching new scouts how to rappel and the simple design improvement of the oval has saved us countless rescues from kids getting stuck on the rope half way down to the bottom. It doesnt happen often,. but with complete beginners in a scout troop with lots and lots of kids going down the rope, it used tto happen more than youd think with the old style eight. buy this ! ,,Love the Madness !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Awesome for rappeling, works great with your rope doubled but way funner single, gives plenty of friction but not too much. The shape is great. Works great belaying top rope in my opinion, maybe not as much friction locked as an atc or what have you but i've never had an issue. Good size but not real heavy. Definitely recommend it over other figure 8 style devices i've used (O.P & Mammut), get it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best This is the only 8 I would use for rappelling. Light, strong, and simple to use. The small hole can be used as a belay plate, however it puts a sharp bend in the rope and has a tendency to twist the rope and make lowering difficult, especially while belaying heavier climbers. It will still work if no other device is available, just not my personal go to for belaying. However, I would not choose anything else when it comes to rappelling!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Standard Figure 8 I've had one of these for a couple years now, I rarely use it because I usually prefer to belay and rappel on an ATC but if you are looking for an 8 this is a good one. It's much lighter and cheaper than a safety 8 and functions the same minus the wings. The price on this has gone up slightly since I bought one. I think they used to be around $8, but at $15 it is still a good deal. I would recommend to a friend looking for an 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Standard This is a solid pretty standard figure eight. You only need one unless you lose it. I have had it for a long time and it is still in great shape. The only thing to note is that if you use this a lot to pick up some climbing gloves as well. The rope can tend to get away from you if you can not get a great grip on it. Make sure to learn how to properly use this before you try it for people just learning to climb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go ahead and look down. It's scary but fun. I rappelled for the first time off the face of Gibraltar Rock using the BD Super Eight. The natural fear that ensues from the act of leaning backwards off a cliff holding your life in one hand behind your back and hoping that your friend knew what he was doing when he set the anchors, was abated when I realized how much fun rappelling was. The DB Super Eight made the rappels smooth and quick while manageable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best Pieces of Gear Ever Designed By Man I love my Super 8, it's lasted for around 3 years, and has not let me down once. Even though everyone else is out there with their GriGri's and Cinch's, I find I ultimately have more control with my Super 8, and also the hardcore lines where the rope has worn away its paint. Rope does tend to twist a little when you're belaying, but nothing beats rappelling with one of these baby's.
