    Black Diamond ATC-Sport Belay Device - The ATC-Sport Belay Device by Black Diamond is lightweight, durable and maintains a silky-smooth feeding making it perfect for adventure racers. A super light belay device designed for sport cragging and gym use, the ATC-Sport is a simplified, single-rope version of the ATC-XP. Two friction modes offer optimal stopping power while lowering your partner, and the versatile design accepts a wide range of rope sizes from 7.7 mm to 11 mm. With hot-forged construction, this belay device provides a solid catch thanks to a deep V-shaped groove on the brake-hand side and the durable cable holds its shape and resists getting caught between ropes.

    I've been testing a variety of devices for self-rappel only. Descent is very smooth but the teeth engage constantly when your brake hand is in the normal position. Maybe the brake would not engage so much with thinner rope. I used 11mm, which is the biggest rope possible for the device. For self-rappel, I'd give it 3 stars, but overall 4 stars since this is primarily a belay.

    If you're looking to have the best belay device, and only buy one once, get the DMM pivot. If you want to spend a little less money, get an ATC-XP Guide. But the ATC sport is all that most climbers need, and it works perfectly. There is no real reason for most climbers to spend more.
