Safety & Ease
Posted by Rodney E Mulder on 1st Sep 2014
I've used a rack and figure 8 for years, and so does just about everyone else that I know. Those devices are the weakest links in my rope work because if I were to let go of the rope for some reason, I'd fall. This thinking moved me to try the Stop. My pal has a Petzl Stop that he does not use because he had been told by others that a rack is better. I borrowed his Stop and learned it quickly. I found that if I rigged it wrong - no harm; I simply wouldn't go anywhere. If you rig the rack wrong, you fall. I really liked that I could go hands free with the device and it would keep me in place. It's also very easy to use; to tie off, to change over, to lower other people. Racks do give a smoother descent, compared to the Stop. The Stop is no substitute for a full rack which when it comes to very deep drops, or when rappelling on swollen or filthy ropes. But as an all-around descent device, this is the one to have. It's not cheap, but the benefits are worth it to me. Even my friend that loaned me the Stop has seen the benefits and gone back to using it.
