The Huit Antibrulure by Petzl is a high strength forged aluminum device for rappelling. This is a figure eight descender with an anti-burn grip. The grip was designed for those times you are rappelling down your rope for long distances or quickly, and the device gets heated up from the friction. Instead of grabbing a hot piece of metal with your bare hands, Petzl has put a rubber piece on the end to pinch and pull to get out of the rappel. A square shape helps to keep your ropes from getting that curly-q twist in it, and a small hole is provided for thin ropes or even can be used as a belay plate if necessary.
