This is my go-to device. All the cons listed an be easily remedied with practice. While absolutely not recommended there have been more than one occasion during a rap when the rope weight was enough to lock the device out. Nice when a rope is stuck or you are on a difficult rap. Doesn't kink the rope like the Reverso 3 though I do miss the option for guide mode. Not recommended for big huge noob ropes. Skinny is good!
