Black Diamond ATC-XP

rated 4.5 of 5 stars
photo: Black Diamond ATC-XP belay/rappel device

Flexible device, can use both the smooth and ridged sides. The smooth side has the same feel as the original ATC (which performs excellent). The ridged side however is a bit too much friction for me.

Don't get me wrong, the friction/ridged side is a good idea, but it somehow lost the smoothness that everyone enjoyed from the classic ATC.

I have a nine and eleven year old who easily learned how to use this to belay each other and rappel with 10.2mm rope. What else can I say. Simple, easy, rugged, inexpensive.

Price Paid: $18.98

Love this device. Nothing fancy or complicated. Just a great piece of bombproof gear.

Price Paid: $20
