Hmm my to bobs is to agree with the above sentiment, a munter works fine for belaying, hell a waist belay does too if you envision your second isnt gonna fall! But if you want to improve the level of safety, efficiency and comfort for your second, use an autoblock. Use which ever one you can get a deal, they're all about the same now IMO. Get your fattest HMS screwgate for running the rope through and never belay off your waist again! Better that way as its safer, faster(can do things whilst belaying safely), less force on the anchor in most situations, easier/faster to pull rope through, no need to escape the belay ever, two seconds safely climbing simultaneously is possible.

Theres a billion ways to skin the climbing cat, pick what way suits you. If your serious about learning to climb long routes fast, get an autoblock...
