right in the middle

It is actually not a bad top-rope device. Just don't try to belay anybody that weighs under a buck twenty because it doesn't come with a handle to rotate it towards you and unjam it at that point-especially on 11mm. Takes some getting used to because the Lock off and Feed are so defined, especially on softer ropes. Don't use it for lead cause you won't be able to pay out that slack unless you hold it off of the carabiner with your brake hand (but don't do that). It's just a tad too short/low-profile, but it's almost perfect for rappelling if you weigh enough.
