Solid

It is what it is, and it does its job. Smaller ropes aren't its forte and I use it exclusively indoor for belaying (I like the extra grab of the XP for outdoor), but it works well enough for rappelling since it doesn't have the ridges like the XP or Guide (if you are sticking with the BD products, I haven't used any other companies belay devices yet). It's simple and it works, so I'm happy with it.
