Useless

|If you look at the design you will see they have added springs to try to prevent the device from locking up whilst paying out. This does not work effectively.
I can make the device work with an 8.9mm rope lead belaying however any fatter than this at it locks up so easily as to be useless. If you don't get the rope angle just right as it enters the device it locks. When topping with typical fat indoor ropes the friction is far too high.
I have the alpine up which works my better and have used the old click up single rope device which functions much better for lead belaying.
I really have been persistent in trying to learn this device as I thought it would be better than a gri gri but the grigri or the alpine up is my go to device now.
