Super 8 Belay/Rappel Device is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dougslug from frozen ropes not a problem I've used all the Black Diamond belay/rappel devices but I still bring my Super 8 for winter rappels as I never have to fight to fit frozen rope thru the slots of an ATC. I find it worth the weight when it is getting dark and my hands are cold especially.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tanner from A solid 8 Its just an 8, nothing fancy. It's pretty light. My personal opinion is that the radius is a little small giving it a bit more friction than I'm used to. Excellent price and certainly a quality product.
