Black Diamond - ATC - XP
Our best selling belay device.
This is basically the same device as the ATC, but with teeth on one edge for extra friction. This makes it a better option than the ATC for use on skinny ropes. If you are going to be using half ropes for trad climbing or skinny single ropes for sport climbing then this device will be more suitable than a standard ATC.
Colour choice is for the wire colour.

Easy to use, and the teeth really make a notable difference in the stopping power
Been using the original ATCs for years and years, but upgraded to the XP last year. I wouldn't have thought it possible, but this is an improvement on the timeless classic. The teeth give improved stopping power, which gives me a lot of confidence when I'm being belayed by my 12 year old daughter...
Much better for half ropes than the standard ATC (which I find a bit big). Light weight, solid and the black/orange combo makes for a nice colour.
