Call me old-fashioned, but for sport belay and abseil/rappel, I prefer the Sticht plate. The plates are getting harder to find because everyone seemed to be jumping on the ATC bandwagon. Enter the SBGII. It does everything the Sticht plate does, everything the ATC does and still provides an added feature that allows it to serve as a Figure-8 as well. It is extremely versatile and doesn't matter if you're big or small, or if the person you are belaying is big or small; doesn't matter what size rope you are using, or if you're using two ropes. The SBG II handles them all! I've replaced 3 lbs of gear with a 4-oz SBG II.

Bought this to replace my ATC XP, and could not have made a better choice. The SBG II can lock off a big fall with a big person with very little effort. With my ATC, I had to put some effort into catching a fall as well as holding a heavy climber. But with this little gem the friction point is so effective yet smooth that I no longer waste effort and energy holding/catching a climber. In the past, I would grab my Gri Gri if I new the climber would be hanging/falling a lot, but with this I no longer need to with its perfectly effortless friction points! I would consider this the best tube style to learn on due to its attributes.

I am getting back into climbing now after a very long time away. In that time, the ATC style devices have replaced the figure 8 for belay and rappel (at least in climbing). I use single rope, and so far the SBGII works great. Creates lots of friction with out lots of effort. So far, I have only belayed with it, but found it to work without problem. I have not used other ATC style devices, so I have nothing to compare to, but the SBGII has worked without a hitch. No weird behavior, not binding, no difficulties. It is also simple to understand and rig.

Personally I also like that it is American made. And made well, far as I can tell.

I bought this as my first belay device a long time ago, and never saw the need to switch to anything else until now (I am starting to climb outside, where a more versatile autoblocking device is better). The multiple friction settings are a definite advantage over your standard ATC device. For climbers my weight an under, I use the normal U-profile. For climbers heavier than me, I use the V-grooves. I have never used in the figure-8 configuration, but it's a nice option to have if I ever need it. Also, as advertised, I have never had this belay device jam - it ALWAYS feeds and takes rope smoothly.

Though I really like the device, there are some quirks that one has to adjust to. First, it is best used with a belay-specific carabiner with a nicely rounded profile that keeps the device/rope centered (I use the Jake HMS Locking Screwgate Carabiner). I found that with the industry standard Petzl Attache Locking Carabiner , there were some cross-loading issues that were probably due to the carabiner being flatter at the wide part. Cross-loading can also be avoided by belaying from the narrow end of the carabiner.

Secondly, I found that belay devices with a wire loop are slightly easier to slip on and off the carabiner simply because there is less "stuff".

Finally, with simpler/beginner harnesses that have a horizontal belay loop (as opposed to the better and more common vertical one), you really have to mind the orientation of the device so that the braking rope exits towards the correct side.

what a great find. i stumbled upon it accidentally and now its the best one I've ever seen, you can use it as a traditional one or as a figure 8 belay. and with multiple friction settings it is great for beginners as well as experts. made of light weight aluminum so it adds little weight to your climb.
a must have for climbers of every skill.

Excellent belay and rappel device, not the lightest but it's certainly sturdy and trustworthy given its one piece design.

I use this as my primary belaying device when I climb in the indoor gym at my college. The two modes of friction is great when you have tiny climbers and the higher friction for those who don't like falling fast. Haven't had the opportunity to try it as a rappel device.

This video is a great overview of all the functions of the SBGII:
