General comments: I'm a climbing coach and outdoor instructor - so there's probably not a belay device that I haven't tried out. This is my 'go too' device for the wall - its very robust & simple for clients to use. The wide range of rope diameters that it can cope with allows for clients who want to use their own kit - right through to those great big furry wall ropes that we all know and love. There's a very nice camber to the teeth (notches) on the holding side of the device - I find that with the 10mm DMM Statements that I normally use it locks smoothly and efficiently - some other more aggressive devices can have a snap that can be very disconcerting for new climbers. It's marketed as a lightweight device - quite who is weighing their devices I don't know - but personally I find them to have a very solid robust feel to them - something I like in a safety device. Technically the down side of this device is that it can't be used for a double rope situation (retrievable abseil for example) - but that's not what its for! If you like having the right piece of kit for the right job then I'd say this is very very good at what its designed for. Oh one last point - the Black Diamond site days it comes in a range of colours - I've only ever seen the dark blue - though I've no idea why this would matter!

Pros: Very simple & easy to understand

Cons: Can't be used with double ropes or for retrievable abseils.
