A great versatile belay device, it is not over designed like other - it bites well into the rope, and I have never had an issue with it catching a fall, or it being used for abseil
Lowering a climber is a bit strange, and the rope can run over your thumb which is a bit uncomfortable. Definitely look into the information provided by Edelrid to see other ways of lowering (pressing on the nose with your thumb and rotating the device)
At first i was in doubt if i should buy this device or not. I decided to risk it, and after i started using it, i could say it is like no other! it is durable , made by steel instead of aluminium. It is much more safer when belaying leading or top roping mode, cause it is semi auto block! You only have to learn how to use it cause it is a little bit different in use , comparing to ATC or REVERSO. But that is exactly what makes it safer!
super small and light....you can even carry it into your pocket!Would definitely recommend it !
