... I and many others never see a reason to use 'guide mode.' Are you really telling me you can't give a competent top rope belay without 'guide mode?' Use it if you wish, but don't pretend it is the end all, be all of top belaying.

rgold has railed on guide mode for years, and I feel the same way. I want a belayer that can quickly and easily manage the slack in both directions. I want a belayer that can lower me quickly and competently. I want a belayer that does more than take in the rope until I hit the anchor. And I want to be just as great a belayer for my second and I am when belaying a leader ...

There is a device called a Gri-Gri that will change your religion.

Flame on.
