After using a friend's Black Diamond ATC belay device as well as their Black Diamond ATC-XP belay device, I decided to order the regular ATC as my first belay device. I liked how versatile it is, how easy it is to rappel with, and I felt that the rope slipped through the device less than it did with the ATC-XP.Great little belay device, whether you're purchasing your first or want to just add to the collection!
This is a fairly basic but straight forward ATC. I wanted just a classic ATC, as I was getting back into climbing and this does the trick. No frills and build quality is nice and straight forward.
Very smooth belay device. Construction is solid. Easy to use. Fits my 10.2mm rope fine without having to muscle the rope though. Black Diamond has great products all around.
