Great for the price.

I have only had the chance to use it a few times but it worked awesome! It definitly has a very specific purpose but it's about the only piece like it out there and you can't beat the price! I got it to keep on my climbing harness as a backup rappel and belay device. I often take amateur climbers out who don't have a belay device so when I forget to grab my main one after loaning it this rap ring comes in soo handy and it's incredibly light so I don't even notice its on my harness. It also functions as an alpine cock ring for some complex trad anchors! My only complain is that it's a bit narrow diameter for my 11mm rope. Rappelling with it is kinda slow. I guess I just like to rap fast. So if you don't have a fat rope it's awesome! I would also recommend not using it with a very small rope either cause you wont have enough friction. It might work better with a fatter biner in that situation, something like an HMS. So basically it's the best tool around for it's job just don't use it for the wrong thing!

this is not a rappeling device!!!!!!! your supposed to leave it behind when you rappel off an anchor

I agree, this is most definitely not a repelling device... It might work ok, but I would suggest restricting it to its intended use.

Its just fine for this use and is really no different than an original plate or tuber that we used to use back in the day.
