dcr2448800-0wrote a review of CAMP USA Shell Belay Device on September 30, 2008
The cable loop of the CAMP Belay Device may be too flexible and can get caught in the ropes when rappelling with 2 ropes. When this happens, the plastic rubbed off and the steel cable is exposed. Yikes.
Details: You will be OK if you are rapelling slowly, at a turtle's pace (ZZZzzzZZZzzz), and are watching the cable loop. I was double rope rappelling with two different sized diameter ropes (not ideal, but still safe - google it). However, my partner was using my new Black Diamond ATC Guide and it was fine with a fast double rope rappel.
I used Black Diamond ATC for 5 years and recently a Black Diamond ATC Guide, double rope rappel numerous times, with different diameter ropes, with no problems.
