Description

The Variable Controller was one of the first devices to move belay plates onto another level with its wedge shaped design, usable in two performance modes to give more stopping power or less friction depending on circumstance. This combined the best attributes of ‘flat’ plates with the best of the ‘deep’ plates meaning that when belaying, rope could be fed quickly, but when abseiling, more friction could be applied. However, the even more refined VC Pro 2 has slightly widened out the slots on this original device to give extra performance on single ropes, making the VC better for indoor walls and single pitch routes. This means that the VC is most suited for ropes from 9mm to 11mm rather than the more modern super skinny trad ropes where the new VC Pro pulls rank. The VC is great value, remains a solid and reliable tool in any climbers armoury and a great choice for climbers maybe not heading for the most extreme challenges. Made from 12mm round bar stock means that the Synergy is a true HMS, and this means that this unit is highly recommended for all belaying jobs as the round bar helps the rope run more smoothly. The round bar also means it has the ability to be used with a Italian hitch to double as a belay or abseil device in its own right – useful if you drop your belay device. It is important to note that the Synergy's gate uses 7075 alloy which is the same as the biner body and is super strong. This means unlike many other brands the gate when closed should make the same strength if pushed inwards as pulled outwards. This is not a requirement for the CE test but it is something that Wild Country has insisted on as there have been a number of notable failures of gates when pushed in, especially in abseiling situations using Figure 8s. Finally, like all the Wild Country biners, the thimble on the gate always stops short of the nose making sure it cannot be over-tightened.
