Been the choice for belaying/repelling

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This has been a product that has continued to impress me over the years. It is by far my choice for belaying and repelling. It's being light, ease of function and incredible durability through the long run has proven it my most important piece of equipment.
Limited to larger diameter ropes when repelling. Not quite enough friction when carrying a heavy pack. Friction is fine for larger ropes

Overall A Great Product

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used this belay device hundreds of times in the gym but have yet to use it outside, I can't say if it's good at the crag or not. As far as top roping goes it's excellent because of its high friction edges which let you get maximum breaking from very little pressure with your break hand. It was also nice because when taking and giving rope it felt smooth and effortless and the device didn't catch unless I put my break hand down. As well as it's great feel with a rope connected, it felt great clipped to the harness too because it's very light and compact. The only problem I found was that it was hard to fit a rope of 10+mm into the opening; it can fit, it will just be very snug and if you get too pumped on the climb it can be tough to get the rope into the device. Other than that issue it is a great device, especially for newcomers to climbing, and will definitely serve you well as your next belay device.

Does exactly what its meant to.

    I have had it for about 3 months now and I have put some good use on it and it is holding up great. Love how much cheeper it is on here vs REI or basically any other site. It has even gone down some since I bought mine but I still got it cheeper than any other site.
