’d guess this is the most common device I see around. It’s about as simple and straight forward as they come. There is beauty in a piece of climbing equipment when there is nothing left to add or take away. Cheryl climbed with these devices for a decade or more, and she always caught my leader falls with style. I never thought they offered the smoothness of a Pyramid, but it was probably that I just never worked with them enough to figure it out. Every climber develops his or her personal favorite, and mine was the Trango. It’s a tough call to say one is actually better then the other though. I’d be happy with either, and my climbing guides prefer that I buy ATC’s for our guest to use because there is only one way to feed the rope through them. Simple and time tested... you gotta like that in your climbing gear.
