Solid, functional belay device
December 05, 2010
I purchased this belay device because of its simplicity and lightness. It has met all of my expectations in both regards. The device sits well on the belay carabiner and the rope comes of the Verso smoothly. Additionally the Verso works great for rappelling, however if you intend on using this for a larger diameter rope the openings in the Verso will be tight. You can use it, but it takes a bit of force to get the rope through.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use

I have had the reverso for a while now, and will still keep it for long multipitch ascents, but the verso is absolutely perfect for my everyday top rope/single pitch lead climbs. Love it, super light and exactly the same great rope handling as my reverso.

I've used mine for belaying top-rope, as well and single and double line rappels. The Verso is fantastic, and the grooves definitely give it an edge over similar belay devices during long days of climbing.
