Kong OKA Rappelling Device Review
The Oka is a new rappelling device made by Kong. It is similar to the Petzl Pirana only it is larger and has more options. I have tried it through wet and dry canyons and it performed great in both. I have also used it with 8mm Canyon Pro DS, 8.3mm Canyon Fire and 9mm Canyon IV and HTP ropes. I also used it with an autoblock.
Locking off was easy and solid. I didn’t have the manual with me so I rigged it they way I show in the lock off illustration.
I really like the smoothness of the rappel that is demonstrated in the Single Line No Autoblock illustration. I was using a 9mm HTP wet.
