Black Diamond Super 8 Descender - The Black Diamond Super 8 is an anodized, super-light and full-size figure 8 that works extremely well when rappelling. Its traditional shape allows the rope to smoothly flow with the perfect amount of friction for the task. The Super 8's design uses thinner diameters on the ends and thicker diameters towards the middle, making it light, durable and functional. For belaying, use the small hole for any size rope up to 11 millimeters. The Super 8 is perfect for climbs involving multiple rappels. Weight: 87 g (3.1 oz).

Great Customer Service!

Initially, EMS sent the wrong color Super 8 Belay. I called customer service and the gentleman on the phone was very helpful. He looked into why I was sent the wrong color and assured me he would return my call by days end. And that he did! I received the right color Super 8 Belay in the mail the next day! Talk about fast service. Kudos to this company. :)

It's an 8

Doesn't get any easier than a figure 8. The Black Diamond model is a tiny bit smaller than the CMIs that I have used in the past, but not enough to matter. The finish is nice and has held up well so far. Fits a 10.1mm rope for double raps with no problem.
