Rated 3 out of 5 by from High friction belay = sharp First off, the belay device does what its advertised to do. The ridges work great for slowing down that big guy (or gal) in your life. ,,,,This was my first high friction belay device that I've purchased and I will stick to regular ones from here on out. Reason being is the ridges form very sharp edges after a short period of usage to the point that I'm reluctant to put a rope through. FWIW, I've messed with other high friction belay devices at the local wall and noticed that they were much smoother. ,,,,All in all, unless you have a pressing need to get a high friction belay device, don't. And if you do, shop around for one with smooth ridges.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Took a little while to get used to When I first got this ATC, I went straight to the high friction side figuring that it would keep me safer and prevent any slips while rappeling and belaying. The thought that those extra grippers were backing up my inexperienced hands was great. In reality, I could barely rapel with the extra friction and provided some pretty bumpy belays as I tried to feed rope over the bumps. Switching to the standard side fixed both of those problems and now I love using it. I think my troubles came more from inexperience than product design, and now that I am used to it, I am happy with my ATC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid. I've used an ATC-XP since I started climbing 12 years ago. I see no need for anything else. So simple a beginner could figure it out, yet solid enough to take some big whipper falls on it with no problems. The paint is wearing off, but with as much rope as has run through mine, that's to be expected. I bought this second one, not because I needed to replace my first one, but just because I was taking bigger groups out and needed some more rappel gear. My first ATC is still going strong after twelve years, so these things last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work Horse I am a part time belayer at my local community center climbing wall. I've used this ATC for a few months now, 4 hours at a stretch a couple days a week and my hands are huge fans. The teeth add traction to the rope so I don't have to squeeze nearly as hard. This is great for me because I can sneak more pitches in myself, and my hands don't hurt the day after at my main gig (I'm also a chiropractor). I've got a second unit in my Search and Rescue bag, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super smooth yet massive stopping power. As one of the leaders of a climbing club we bought a bunch of these to lend to new members who did not have their own gear yet. Almost every climber out there learns on an atc style device so we figured we'd get the tried and true BD atc. I personally have been using the atc guide for years and have found it to be the smoothest at giving slack to a leader yet it still maintains good friction force after the rope sinks into the teeth. Other brands of tube style devices that i have tried have a tendency to bind up on the rope when feeding slack to a leader and lead to short roping a clipping partner. I've also found the atc to deal with fat gym ropes better than its petzl counterpart. Overall the atc has been around for years and is a favorite among climbers for its do everything well capabilities. For a non auto assist device the atc has my vote!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. This product works just like it is suppose to, it gives me no issues at all and it even has an awesome orange color. I love that the teeth on this that grab the rope to help hold a climber when belaying, or when rappelling it makes it much easier to control the descent. I am willing to put this ATC in a life holding situation of both me and my friends. I would highly recommend this product to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade Last time I bought an ATC, there was just the original. It served me very well for many years. After using the XP, I am certain it will do just as well. The material is slick and solid, managing rope effortlessly. Though I thought the negative space in the metal was a gimmick, it offers a noticeable difference in the weight. It's extremely light. Also, those colors are straight up sexy! Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great single pitch device For single pitch climbs, this guy works like a charm. For taller climbs with multiple pitches, don't use this guy AT ALL and turn to its brother, the ATC guide. However, the teeth on this guy, like the guide bite the rope for added friction and security on big falls. It's light, easily handled, and performs great time after time. You'll be able to sue it for years on end before needing a new one.
