SMC Descent Control 8


The SMC Descent Control 8 is ideal in repetitive rappelling and descending environments and provides exceptional control. The unique shape of the Descent Control 8 device prevents the un-weighted end of the rope from rubbing against the rope passing around the neck of the descender. Every weld on this product, like all SMC items, is performed by aircraft certified welders.
