Extra backup for beginning belayers.
Edelrid's Eddy Belay Device is similar to standard auto-locking belay devices, but it's especially appealing to beginning belayers (and the climbers who depend on them). The Eddy uses a semi-automatic locking system, but it has an emergency brake system that eliminates, "panic pulling" of the brake lever; that is, if your belayer lets rope out too quickly when lowering, the braking mechanism will automatically engage to keep you off the deck. The Eddy is burly, too, with a steel body that'll stand up to tons of abuse and a large brake handle that's easy to use. The Eddy works with ropes between 9 and 11 millimeters in diameter, so it'll accommodate everything from workhorse gym ropes to skinny sending cords.
