Petzl Reverso 4

The Reverso 4 is a super light and super intuitive belay and rappel device. The Reverso 4 has two V-shaped friction channels, with asymmetrical side grooves that manage the friction from the rope during use, allowing for better control of rope handling by the belayer, regardless of the rope diameter. Made with hot-forged aluminium and weighing in at only 59g, the Reverso 4 works as a single breaking device for many different types of ropes depending on your style of climbing, and the design itself ensures your ropes remain twist-free. Available in a range of bright colours, this is a belay device that is great to use, as well as great to look at.

This might be the belay device I see most often at the crag. Used indoor and outdoor, for sport and trad. I have used this for years and it is close to optimal. I would recommend this to any one!
