Description

SAR Rescue Figure of 8 Descender with Ears

The figure of 8 does twist the rope and is best used on firm rather than soft rope. It is not recommended for use with rope that comes straight out of a rope bag. It should only be used with a back-up safety lock such as a Rocker or prusik style rope lock.

Also sometimes known as a 'Rescue 8 / Rescue Eight' and often used with silks in aerial dance.
