I agree that it is easy to use, but it is heavy and it twists your rope. This was the first rapelling device I owned and had used it as a belay device when I first started climbing. I owen two and continue to take it on multipitch trad climbs ... one never knows when your current belay device may dissapear!

I feel like the 8's throw too much twist compared to the ATC. It is slightly easier to rig up quickly,but i dont think its worth it.

If you want a super smooth double line rappel that's easy to set up (unlike using an ATC) then go for the 8. When mine "walked away" I was forced to use my ATC and it just doesn't even compare.
