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