Cardiac Arester One device, two rates of descent. The curved profile of the Cardiac Arrester allows you to choose how fast you want to rap. More friction on one side for skinny twins or flip it over and reduce the resistance for the beefy 11 mm. The small oval hole encourages the device to stay aligned and can be used for belaying with a single rope. Forged shape for 2 rates of descent. Unique small hole shape maintains alignment. Small hole can be used for belaying

I have both a CA and a BD super 8 - and the CA doesn't overheat on long rappels. I've had it for a bunch of years, and anyone who can use a figure of 8 can use it, unlike the ATC's Grigri's etc that require instruction before use.

Looks like the male anatomy and it's name makes me think that I am going to die. Just get a super 8 by BD if you want this kind of device.
