Description
The classic descender for ropework, the figure 8 is perhaps the most widely recognized component of all vertical gear. This steel version from PMI is designed for maximum wearability & versatility. You can expect it to provide hundreds of hours of impeccable performance in just about any environment.  The classic geometry of the figure 8 with ears will accept single or double wrapping braking, & this particular unit works with rope diameters up to 5/8".  Use the small, bottom hole as a stitch plate. 
 
This large figure 8 is for extra gritty environments or heavy use. Features include:
  • Drop forged steel 
  • Nickle chrome plated
  • Accepts rope up to 5/8.
  • Color: silver
  • Weight: 567 g.
  • MBS- 28kN
  • NFPA rated.
*NOTE: Figure 8 descenders tend to violently twist & kink the rope during rappels, exacerbating the wear on the rope, especially between the core & the sheath of the rope.  This twisting & kinking suggests early retirement of the rope.  Likewise, these descenders are very small & do not dissipate heat very well.  High speed rappels are discouraged with figure 8 descenders
