The BMS Micro rappel rack is one of the best rappel devices for cave use. It lasts a long time due to the stainless steel construction.
- Stainless Steel
- Friction options
- Lighter weight and more compact than a 14" standard rack
- Not as much friction control as a full size 14" rack
- Weight compared to aluminum devices
Not many pieces of gear last in caving. This one does. After seven years I may have to replace a bar soon.
Not only does the device last, but it works very well. I have used it to rappel down countless deep cave systems, covered it in mud and sand, and it still works.
