Great Belay Device
Review by: hershelgibbs, 2008-11-04
I bought this as my first belay device. I have used the ATC and it is fine for top roping but I like the XP for lead climbing a little more for the extra friction. I didn't even think that you could turn at around and use the low friction side. I will be trying that next time I got climbing, because lowering someone on top rope takes a little longer on the friction side. Overall great belay device, I don't even use a grigri anymore its just easier using the XP.
