Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, easy, dependable, versatile I LOVE belaying w/ my cinch. It's smaller and smoother than my GriGri and can use a wider range of rope sizes. It doubles nicely as a backup ascending device (the bend angle of the rope is shallower, so it runs easier than a GG). I often use it when setting top rope anchors in precarious positions...and I haven't hurt myself yet, so it excels at that task too. It's also a stylish convo starter and cute girls seem to be more attracted to it than GriGris. It's slightly more awkward to use than a GG when lowering someone, but you get used to that quickly. Just don't inadvertently press on the lil button in back with your thumb! That undoes the autostop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for belaying, significantly better than a GriGri. I bought it mainly for sport climbing because I heard that it fed out rope significantly better than a GriGri. I bought a GriGri, but didn't really like it for sport, so I went back to an ATC until I heard about the Cinch. It feeds out rope so well, that the first few times I used it, I fed out way too much rope whenever my buddy went to clip and had to reel some back in. It takes a little getting used to, but the adjustment comes much faster than with a GriGri and its a bit less cumbersome. In addition, as ropes get smaller and smaller, the diameter range of this rope is quite a bit better than the GriGri as well. The included directions with the device could use some work though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for sports climbing, not so good for other purposes Tried both the Cinch and Grigri2. Personally prefered Cinch over grigri2 for sports climbing purpose because of it smoother feed out (or maybe I wasn't that skilled with grigri2 to have found the G-spot to it). It is also much lighter to hang on the gear loop while cragging a project. Grigri2 feels heavy and is definitely bulkier. ,,,,However, I went for the grigri2 in the end because when I help to set routes and had to self belay, I prefer the grigri2. Preferred and feel safer abseiling on the grigri2 as well. But if it is just for sports climbing, Cinch is great! Lightweight and seems to belay smoother for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from still best for lead belay okay well i dont actually own this, but a friend of mine does and i have used it plenty of times. In comparison to other autolocking belay devices, this thing is amazing. It feeds very well and is small, light weight, and easy to use. In comparison to the old cinch the brown one, there are pros and 1 con. pros- much smoother when lowering, i think its a little lighteri might be wrong and I think theres a differnt material to make it more durable again I may be wrong and I think theres a few small design changes. Con-sort of feeding rope is a little different than with the old one, and i haven't really adjusted yet. It might not really be harder, but I haven't adjusted yet to be able to rea

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great alternative to the GriGri So I love the Cinch. It's light, easy to set up, and lowering is a breeze. The only negative that I've noticed is that it's tricky when dumping slack. I know I should be able to pinch the device and pull out slack, but the slightest pull on the climber's side starts to lock the device and makes this hard. I have big(er) hands and I can easily reach the back side of the Cinch and fix this pretty quickly, but my girlfriend can't do this so it locks up on her.,,,,Besides that one little problem this thing is awesome. Oh and it's cheaper than the GriGri.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the Line Auto-Locking Belay Device (IF USED PROPERLY!) This belay device is top notch. It is constructed with quality materials and is less prone to mechanical failure than similar auto-locking devices (like the gri-gri). HOWEVER, this device does have a certain learning curve that isn't present in other devices. Since the rope is essentially passing straight through the Cinch when belaying on lead, it is necessary to always pay attention to your climber and ensure that the device is only left open when feeding out slack. The Cinch will continue to feed out slack if left open so PLEASE make sure if using this device that you understand this about the device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best belay device got a cinch right after i tried a friend's. now i have 3 of them: 1 for indoor, 1 for outdoor, 1 for my wife (converted her to it).,,it feeds very easily and fast. belaying used to make me tired b/c of feeding through the atc or even just taking slack but now i'm just cruising, it's awesome. a hang dogging session is relaxing too b/c it's autolocking.,,IMPORTANT NOTE: be careful when releasing the device: if the climber makes a quick move and fall at the same time you release it, the auto locking mechanism can fail to operate. It happened to me while climbing, so i fell quick a bit till the partner managed to get it to lock again. the trick is to bring the device up so it will lock

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Much better than a grigri I've tried both grigris and like the cinch better than both. It feeds out rope much smoother, doesn't kink your rope, and is lighter and cheaper. All around better! At first there was some herky jerkiness with lowering, and I found that it was easy for the rope to lock up when someone wasweighting the rope on and off quickly (like working a project), but once I got used to using the cinch, I don't feel that way anymore - just took some getting used to, like anything else. I use it indoors, outdoors, toproping, lead-belaying, and multi-pitch.
