Technical Details

I acquired my S. E. Peak eight on eBay from seller lagurindu64 via SEPEAK and Amazon.com in 2022.

The S. E. Peak is forged from aluminum alloy and then soft anodized. Mine is 100 mm. tall, 99 mm. wide, and 12 mm. thick. The rope hole is 35 mm. high and 52 mm. wide. The top center thickness is 11 mm. The shaft length and width are 18 mm. and 38 mm., respectively. The eye measures 27 mm. by 27 mm. The ears are 15.2 mm. long. My S.E.Peak weighs 107 g.

The front is printed with the S. E. Peak logo, "S. E. Peak,"a strength (not rigging) illustration labeled with "kn 30," "EN 15151-2-2012," a book-with-an-"i" icon, "SE-225," "USE ROPE MIN. 9mm," and "USE ROPE MAX 12mm."

Comments

The S. E. Peak is an unusual variation of "midi"size figure eight with ears that more closely resembles some of the"micro size" figure eight with ears like the BlueWater Mini Rescue 8 and the SMC Personal Escape 8, except the S. E. Peak is much larger. The S. E. Peak is essentially identical to one of the Asol eights.

The S. E. Peak rope hole is shorter than normal, so this eight provides too much friction on stiff or muddy ropes. I’d rather choose a standard eight without ears for the eight-compatible situations that I normally encounter.
