Has anyone tried this new CMC descender?

Was wondering if anyone has tried out CMC's new descender. Looks pretty neat! Don't know the range of it, but CMC does have a couple of videos to watch on this link:

Ernie,
This looks a lot like the Scarab. I have one and used it once at the TAG Fall Cave in.
I thought it heated up a lot more than a micro rack.
I didn't use it on anything over 161'
