Omega Pacific SBGII
Historic Range: $9.97-$21.90
Reviewers Paid: $18.95
I had the honour to introduce the sbgII to the Israeli market.
It is now spreading out like a fire in a dry field!
Price Paid: 9.97
Best ever! Tried many different types of ATC's before settling on the SBGII
1. rope will never snag on crabs like others' would, especially when you need to give out some rope in a hurry
2. the 4-way 'adjustments' allow you to belay depending on the leader's weight/preference
3. not as loud as i initially expected (being all metal)
4. overall: smooth, smooth smooth!
am planning to buy extras just in case
caveat: should your belay carabiner be a little narrow (like my petzl freino), space can be a bit tight when you are clipping in; especially when you have other stuff on your belay loop. I carry another belay carabiner, just in case i need to switch.
get one! you won't regret it!
