Topic - Best devices for extra abseiling friction ....

Simon Pollard - on 12 Apr 2013
I am sure we all have had moments when we have abseiled (particularly on single ropes) laden with extra kit when we need more control and friction.

I have used for years a Wild Country VC Pro II mainly with a prussic backup but on long single abs on a single rope into a seacliff adventure sometimes I think I want more control of friction and lockoff.

I have seen the Petzyl Pirana and also the Sterling ATS .... does anybody have any experience of these / pros / cons ??

Thanks in advance.
