2 Years and Going Strong!
I mainly use these for rappelling when I'm Canyoneering and have been using these for 2 years now! I've tried various 8's, BD ATC XP, and the Sterling ATS over the years and I keep coming back to the VC Pro 2 because of it's so inexpensive compared to other Rappel/belay devices and has the curved side to start out with little friction and easily move the rope over to the teeth side to add more friction when you need it. Also It's an ATC so it doesn't twist the rope like an 8 does. I have many of these to loan out to friends I bring canyoneering.
