Not for me

If you like it, use it. It won't fail, but there are enough drawbacks that I recommend against it, or at least recommend a competitor's item. (1) Feeding rope for leads is a pain. (2) Forget about simple rappels. (3) It tends to kink the rope where ATCs do not. I own one, but use my Trango Cinch more often. Choose for yourself, but please don't forget the basics (your ATC).
