5* excellently engineered piece of equipment.

The Trango Cinch is amazing in my opinion.
When top ropping at a gym with fat furry ropes it still lowers smoothly and easily. When leading it pays out almost as if there wasnt a device there and locks up quickly and reliably.
It looks awesome and the engineering behind it is impressive. However this device like all assisted devices can be misused, the Cinch is 'easier' to misuse than the grigri but then again every belay device can be misused just as easily.
I prefer the cinch over the grigri 2 any day despite the small learning curve required.
You can rap' with it!!! just need to single line it, even shows how to on the packaging.
