I love this lightweight, classic ATC. The black one looks sick. A sleek and very functional design- unlike a lot of the other complicated belay devices, this one definitely stands out with its simplicity and the dual rope is an added benefit. This is great to have as a backup- just chuck it in your bag incase!
There isn't much to say about a product that is basically the defining word in primary belay devices. It is rock-solid, has a perfect balance of friction and smooth release and is a bargain. Buy one. Then buy something more expensive and complex. Then find yourself coming back to this, time and again.
