Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The DMM Bug belay is a great all rounder device that is equally at home down the climbing wall as it is out on the grit. It also works well with wet ropes. This belay device is designed to work with medium to 'fat' ropes, and within the 8.5 mm - 11 mm range it handles beautifully. Although a tricky balance to get right, DMM probably nailed it. The Bug is slick enough to allow a quick release of rope, just when it's needed, but secure enough to allow a firm lock down in the event of a fall. It can be used as an abseil device within the rope diameter guidelines.
