ISC Red Off-shore Approved Version

Abaris International are one of the lead distributors for the ISC Red Rope Access Backup device and have just received stock of the latest Offshore Approved version. This differs from the original model in that it has a second popper position (one is in a  lower position that previous making the device easier to tow <but the popper is likely to be harder to pop>) and it also features an extra length of cord on the non towing end of the cord which has a loop to connect to a karabiner lessening the risk of dropping it.
