Awsome belay. Would normally use an 8 but i picked one of these up to try out and it performed great. Great braking and the oversized biner in the package is lightweight and useful even with my 8. Now i carry both in my bag. The 8 gets me speed and this ATC gives me time to rap with minimal effort. It also works great when you have to belay your buddies from the bottom or overhead, very smooth. For a beginner this is the first piece of equipment i would recommend, but you'll keep it forever.

These ain't the greatest thing since TP, but if you just need some good priced lightweight gear these will be in your bag. I have these and the standard Black Diamond D biners and for 3kN difference in capacity the weight of these makes up for everything. The "heavy duty" biners feel like double the weight in your hand. Don't get me wrong I do not use these when rapping, occasionally somewhere in my climbing setup I'll stick 1 or 2 for a backup. The term "light" makes me superstitious when I'm hanging a hundred feet over nothing, but nonetheless i keep 4 in my bag & 2 on my pack for general accessories.

90% of the time that i use this it's to quickly setup my hammock. A tree hugger, 1 biner, & 2 of these make for a 5 minute campsite. As said in the previous posts, you can't rap with them but i do use it in my setup occasionaly. Ultralight, compact, super strong, and can accomodate all but the thickest rope easily. If you're on the trail carry at least 2. I guarantee you'll find a use for them before you return.
