5 stars title= belay device improved, 2nd Jul 2013

Reviewer: John Gioannini

This device is a significant improvement in belay devices. Think all the benefits of ATC guide and GriGri combined into one device with none of the short-commings of either.

I works will with single ropes and double ropes, feeds rope easily, repels safely without the need for an autoblock back up.

I have had mine for about a year and look forward to seeing these used more because they are much safer than ATC style devices with modern thin and slick ropes.
