No problems. It makes for a smoother, more controlled rap with 8.5mm half rope and 6mm cord.

My belay device / biner set-up is a BD ATC / single HMS locker, and I use a short loop of 5mm cord for an auto-block. Experienced no major rope tangles or twists and no damage to either rope or cord.

I clip my daisy chain to one of the ropes when rapping - to remeber which rope to pull, and also help split the ropes (especially handy if wet or frozen).
