Rated 3 out of 5 by Gumby from It's ok, but probably should get something else Got this for Christmas, but I wouldn't have bought it for myself. 1. The carabiner likes to rotate, which is weird and a little scary. When I'm lead belaying, 90% of the time when I look down at it, it's rotated itself sideways and is cross-loaded right next to the gate. I would expect a carabiner designed to work with an ATC to self-correct in this situation and not be stable sideways, but it is. I got a Gridlock to replace it. 2. The ATC-XP works fine for belaying from the ground, but the ATC-Guide is only a little more money and can be used in more situations, so why does the ATC-XP even exist? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick from Great combination to get started belaying I really like this set up for belaying. The carabiner is easy to set up and lock with one hand and the ATC-XP is versatile enough to allow me to belay and lower my 50 pound daughter using the low friction mode or my 200 pound friends using the high friction mode. Super simple to set up, it is hard to wrong.
