It's alright

This tool is slightly better than a figure 8. There are several ways you can put the rope on the tool, which allow you more or less friction. That part is good.



The downsides are: It twists the rope (like an 8 would) and you HAVE to use a Petzl carabiner (the hole on the left isn't big enough to fit most 'biners).



If you are considering getting this tool, I recommend a rap rack instead. There is practically NO twist in the rope while descending with a rack. Some models also allow you to adjust the friction.
