    Details

    Slim down your rack without sacrificing bomber gear.

    Petzl created the Verso Belay Device for lovers of the Reverso who want to lighten their rack. Not only is the Verso 31% lighter than the Reverso, it’s more compact. Whether you’re climbing with a single, half, or twin rope, Petzl’s Adaptive Rope Control technology adapts by increasing or decreasing the braking friction to suit the diameter and conditions. When you’re climbing partner is working the crux, the Verso’s asymmetrical grooved sidewalls decrease friction for ease when taking up slack. Use this belay device with asymmetrical biners for max efficiency.

    Classic ATC

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I have the older version of this, which used to be a red color scheme. It's a great belay device. I always recommend that people learn to use an ATC before moving on to a grigri, and this one is a classic. Never leave ground without it!

    Great Belay Device for Lighter Belayers

      I ordered the Verso to belay my 50+lbs-heavier-than-myself boyfriend, and I love it so far. The grooves give me better control and security when lowering my climber, and they help me with quicker, firmer, stronger lock-offs during falls. It's super lightweight, which I love, and the color is vibrant. The boyfriend noted, though, that belaying me with the Verso was a little more difficult than using his own standard ATC device. He stated that this was because I am much lighter, and the grooves aren't necessary for him to belay me and thus just kind of slowed him down. I would recommend it to climbers who belay heavier climbers though, I love it!

      Best ATC

        By far the best ATC that I have ever owned or used. On this site it says that its used for rope diameters between 7.5 and 8.9mm, but that must be the minimum (or a mistake) I don't remember ever seeing any such information in the attached info packet and I've used this device countless times with a 10.2 and 9.8 and never had any issues. The "Adaptive Rope Control Technology" is perfect allowing a nice soft catch, but providing enough 'bite' to give you plenty of confidence.

        Simple, light, Good

          Its a great light biner. What i'd like to point out is that the Rope groves on this atc are not as deep as the Petzel Reverso 3 and even the BD ATC-XP. So it may have a bit less stopping power but i have not used them back to back. Its smooth with no snags and gets the job done very well.

          Great Device

            I bought this as a spare belay device to loan out (I use a first generation reverso usually), but since then I've started using this every time I don't plan on needing to autoblock. It's light and smooth, but has plenty of friction when the time to lock off comes.

            If I'm belaying a second (or anyone) from the top, I'll want an autoblock. Otherwise I'll save the weight and use this device.

            Unanswered Question

            Not sure why this says it is 31% lighter than the Reverso. Actually, the Reverso is 59 grams and this, the Verso, is 57 grams. Definitely not a 31% difference in weight. Perhaps you're talking about the original Reverso? Either way, this is incorrect, and should be changed.
