In no disrespect to Canyoneering....rapping off a fifi hook is a really bad idea. A fifi is designed as a quick and fast way to attach yourself to a bite of webbing or a Daisy Chain. It's not designed to hook into rock! You would be much better off using what used to be called a 'bat hook,' now known as a 'Cliffhanger'
And frankly as a climber with 20 years under my belt - I would only rap off any hook as a last resort - It's a good way to end up dead.
They call you Fi Fi, why I'm not sure
But in my heart you will always endure
You my secret weapon when I climb with speed
Oh FiFi, Oh FiFi, your useful indeed.
For top stepping to reach a fare off piece
And then being able to quickly release
There's no comparing you to a simple biner
Your less manly sounding, but meaner and leaner.
So Fi Fi, my sweet, this poem is for you
To my heart you'll always be true.
From hard aid climbing, to napping on lead
Your the the tool that gives me godspeed.
The Fifi is a great way to hook into your pro while aiding, theonly problem I have with it is that I think the sling it is build with is too long. When stepping up it will un-hook itself. But if you are not too gumbyish you can avoid this. As far as rapping off it, that is maddness. It would serve better as a keychain.
This thing sees a lot more use than I thought it would. I keep it with me while I am climbing and ends up hanging me from gear while I am trad climbing or doing a project. I like the Petzl hook better though, seems lighter but doesnt come with the sling.
This hook works great for canyoneering as well. Instead of leaving webbing behind or putting in a bolt, just hook it to a flake of rock and repeal off it. When you get down just flick the rope to recover the hook. Great tool.
