Pro: This belay device is VERY easy to brake with as it has major friction in the standard setup. There is a picture on device (climber-rope-you-brake hand) to eliminate confussion.
Con: Too much friction in standard position for smooth rappelling or lead climbs.
Fix: The owners manuel says "for smoother belays or rappelling invert the device." Works excellent upside down, very smooth just like a standard ATC.
