Petzl Pirana

Description

The Petzl Pirana is a modified figure 8 with two reeving posts.

Advantages

The Pirana does not need to be removed from the carabiner when clipping and unclipping. The reeving posts allow for 3 modes of friction and temporary lock offs. The Pirana is impossible to girth hitch when rigged correctly.

Disadvantages

The Pirana must be used with the Petzl A'MD or Attache locking carabiner.

Cost is about 3x as much as a regular Figure 8.
