The reverso is available here. It is crazy light, a scaled down reverso. It does have a very limited rope range though. 8.5s will not work with it. It really is as per the serving suggestions.

Tel, if you really are just 'standard belaying' and single-roping, a Black Diamond Air Traffic Controller has my vote. Works smoothly (better than most 'copies' in my opinion), but not too fast (smoother than my reverso, but slower for abseils); you can't put the rope in the wrong way (slow/fast), and you wouldn't want a different mode anyway. There are also a few reasons that I prefer the wire keeper to rigid ones (like Reverso).
