Used the ATS to rappel into several caves. This device is lightweight and well designed. It handles 11mm rope surprisingly well for what it is.

- Gets hotter than a stainless rappel rack
Used to rappel a 120' cave drop on 11mm static rope a couple times. I'd guess it would be great for canyoneering, as it has more friction options than a standard fig. 8.
I really liked the ATS, but it does get a lot more hot on fast rappels than my stainless rack.
