Things to consider

8-9mm Static canyoneering rope single line rappels. 185 pound user

Needs to be able to allow rappelling in running water. (ATC type devices tend to lock off with the force of running water on the rope.)


Ease of use. Multi use (eg climbing and canyoneering)

Looking for people's opinion on both or either of the devices. I want to pick one up for some bigger canyoneering goals but am having a hard time deciding between the two.

Thanks for the input.
