Description

Mad Rock just made the belay device better. The Mad Rock Aviator used the standard tube-style belay device as a starting point and improved it. The Aviator's unique removable spring keeps the device from locking when you feed the rope -- an inherent design weakness with regular tube-styled belay devices. The forged and machined aircraft aluminum body makes the Aviator light and it provides for optimal heat dissipation. The Aviator also works for belaying seconds off an anchor and can be easily rigged for releasing a load when used off an anchor as well. The Aviator's unique ergonomic "fin" can be used to modulate speed while lowering or descending.

      Comments about Aviator Belay Device:

      This thing was a little bigger than I expected, but this has made it very nice for accepting ropes. It's not overly heavy, but there are lighter ATCs out there. The locking was very strong. I'm not sure if the spring really helps too much, but it did seem to feed easier than others I've used. The hook on the side was is really nice when the climber wants to take a rest; you don't have to grip as tightly to keep the rope locked. I'll probably try some different ATCs in the future, but for now I like this one alot.

        Comments about Aviator Belay Device:

        I have been climbing for years... I utilize the aviator at my home crag. for the price It by far outdoes the R****so which can cost anywhere from 25-40 dollars. The lever on the back side is good for belay and rappel speed as the spring allows a very smooth action of taking and giving slack. This product helps boost the performance of not only the belayer but the leader who needs to know he's not gonna be pulled off the rock when the give isn't smooth.
