I did play with one a bit at ISPO last month, functionally itīs the same as SRC, Smart and the rest.
So it has the "move around and click into a locked position" functionality?

Which means paying out conventionally is more challenging and where Climbing Technology had the better idea. But it is a fair bit more compact than the competition which will help sales.
Havent yet tried the conventional approach with the smart, and have never handled the CT, but i would guess it should be easier as the smart, since in only has a thumb loop and not the whole channel? I think it also is cheaper than most others?

In reply to:
Hard to tell at a show what itīs really like with a filthy, damp and half knackered 10mm rope out there in the real world but looking at the slot dimensions and the radii it will probably be pretty grim like all the rest, thumb ache dragging loads of rope through could be an issue.
You are not supposed to get your ropes filthy and dirty! You are supposed to climb dry and perfectly bolted, short, overhanging sport routes under the southern sun, while wearing the latest climbing fashion, with shiny new metal and a smooth ultrathin rope. Get with the times, gramps… Wink
But thats the tradeoff with about all devices except the munter hitch, You have to choose between easy handling and high brake force. Trying to cover various rope sizes in one devices just makes these problems worse.
