Description

Exceptional control when starting acceleration, rappelling speed, and deceleration for stopping are the most notable characteristics of the Descent Control 8 Descender. Light weight, tough, and stainless steel wear-resistant surfaces are other important features of this unique descender. The SMC Decent Control 8 performs extremely well in repetitive rappelling environments, such as rescue training or at climbing gyms.

Designed for use on rope 1/2” and smaller, the wider ”shoulders” help to prevent formation of a girth hitch when the rappeller’s weight is off the rope. When being used in descending, the unweighted end of the rope does not rub against the loop of rope passing around the neck of this descender, due to its unique shape. As with all SMC products, welding is done by aircraft certified welders, followed by dye penetrant inspection to insure full compliance with our stringent Quality Assurance Standards.
