Got the Reverso 3 to avoid having to switch between my regular Reverso and the Reversino. I've use it for a couple of weeks and it works well with my my double 8.1 mm and a single 9.8mm. Haven't used it in the auto-lock position, for a second, but expect that it would work fine. My double 8.1 are pretty new and still slick, in a free repell I would prefer a little more friction from the Reverso 3. All in all a good choice if you regularly switch between fat and skinny ropes.

I've used this tent for about eight years on everything from overnight backpacking trips to week long mountaineering and it's absolutely bomb proof. I've owned tents by Mt. Hardware, TNF, Noall and worked in outdoor retail over 10 years and no tent has impressed me as much as the Fitzroy, I'll always have a Bibler for the trips where I don't want to worry about what the weather throws my way. In good weather it opens up enough to stay cool, in rain it vents well with no condensation, and in the truly bad stuff it's drum tight and solid.
