Learn the basic belay.
Every climber should learn how to belay with Black Diamond's ATC-XP Belay Device. It's of the utmost importance to learn the basic belay style before upgrading to auto-locking devices, and this device has high-friction grooves to assist with braking and catching. Black Diamond updated this device with machined windows for a lighter feel.

- Q & A
Does the job.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Only used this a couple of times, but it's worked well. The high friction side adds an extra bit of bite when belaying, but I prefer the regular side when rappelling.
Does exactly what its meant to.
I have had it for about 3 months now and I have put some good use on it and it is holding up great. Love how much cheeper it is on here vs REI or basically any other site. It has even gone down some since I bought mine but I still got it cheeper than any other site.
