The Russ Anderson/SMC Figure 8 with Ears is one of the most popular full-sized descenders used by professionals throughout the industrial, rescue, fire service and police/tactical markets. Machined from 1/2in thick solid aluminum heat-treated bar and then finished with a very tough hard-anodized finish in either gray or black.

Intended for use with either single or double wrap rope, up to 1/2″ in diameter, the “ears” are designed to eliminate the ropes slipping up into a girth hitch, and they also make it easier to tie off when on rappel.
