Great for guide style belay

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This plate is great for setting up a guide belay. Pulling rope through is super easy and it is easy to set up. In guide mode the thing to watch out for is inversion of the rope strands when using only one rope. The instructions demonstrate how this is avoided.
For lead belay this device feels a little lacking in friction. Holding body weight with it allows rope to slip slowly through. I haven't caught a lead fall on mine, nor would I want to. Rappelling works fine. Just use a prussic like you're supposed to.
In summary, great for guide mode, and a little low friction for everything else. This is the second device to bring in multi pitch. I use a megajul and the ovo. Both super light with complementary abilities. And at the price here, it never hurts to have a backup device.
