The big reason that I went with the Rocklock was the price and that it was a keylock. The gate is smooth and has a good feel. But like omenbringer said, the locking sleeve is not as very smooth. But with that being the only draw back that is have found. I would say, if your looking for a large pearbiner, weather it be for big wall or your belay biner the BD Rocklock is a good buy.

I just got the Cinch and I love it. I was looking at getting the GriGri but when I started looking at the cost and the weight between the two, I went with the Cinch. The Cinch is easier to feed rope when belaying a leader. I will recommend the Cinch to any who ask, what should I get the GriGri or the Cinch? I will tell them the Cinch!!!!!!!
