Functional, Dependable, Classic

By Quin

Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Air Traffic Controller Belay Device:

I've had one of these since the beginning. Never had any issues, works well with a variety of rope sizes. No durability or quality issues whatsoever. Great device to learn on. Easy to see when it's loaded wrong.

simple, light, not expensive

By Eric

from Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago

Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Air Traffic Controller Belay Device:

simple, almost impossible to rig wrong, provides great friction for belay, really shines as a rappel device too; cheap enough to replace when showing wear, or when someone you climb with drops it off a cliff

    The ATC is such a simple but amazing little tool. It works great for self rappelling and catching your partner when they fall. It is extremely easy to use.

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Air Traffic Controller Belay Device:

        My climbing partners bug me to get a better belay device. They slide down the rope when the want to stay in one place. They done feel all that great when climbing. Although great for descending, doesn't deliver when it is most expected to. My climbing partners don't feel safe and they both weigh about 85-90 pounds.

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Air Traffic Controller Belay Device:

        From climbing in the military I was accustomed to a more durable SBD, this proved to be a little light weight and did not operate in the fashion I am accustomed to.

          I just started rock climbing with my fiancee and the reason I got the belay device is because it is easy to use. This is what we learned with when we rented so I sticked with it. Great buy, durable, strong and simple to use.
