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 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 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 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 Light and nimble The Trango Cinch is a great auto-locking belay and rappel device. Belaying a leader on the cinch is smoother than the gri-gri, and it holds falls and rappel breaks just as well also. It's lighter than the gri-gri, which means you can take it up a big wall without having to worry about the weight. ,,I also have a gri gri and the only thing i like my gri gri more for is lowering. The shorter handle on the cinch makes lowering an art (kinda tricky, but i'm sure you'll get the hang of it). ,,With it's lower price and great abilities, I would definitely get a cinch over the gri-gri (I got my gri gri first, and only bought a cinch when they came back into popularity after trying out my friends).

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 5 out of 5 by from Bought this for my boyfriend who climbs alot! He's in love! Bought him one for his birthday and he fell in love with it right away! He climbs with is everyday, he's kind of a neat freak so he has his things separated into indoor climbing and outdoor climbing well he kept joking he'stired of switching this one from his indoor to outdoor bag so I decided to buy him another one for Christmas. The site was really easy to use the free shipping was what made me extremely happy and they had it in blue! I am really satisfied with MooseJaw! And will definetly use them again for his gifts and maybe if i get into the sport for me too! :)
