petzl reverso 3 17-Sep-2008 At 11:21:03 PM southcol

I'm a long way from Albury, and there are plenty of crap bolts to rave about where I am right now (and some good ones). However, I own a reverso 3, and it's grey. Used it a few times, very satisfied. Its very light for its size and performs well so far. It's similar to the BD guide, the cleats hold a fall well with less slippage than the original Reverso. (good and bad).
The only slight cons seem to be: its a long unit due to the design of the biner holes. The release biner hole seems to fit all but my Wildcountry wild wires well. Whilst abseiling I noticed the ropes easily slide out of the cleats if the device is not properly orientated, although this is not a real concern.

Overall, a very different device to the original Reverso. Think of a BD guide in blue or green but less weight and French. The single mould design will eliminate any real or imaginary concerns of the previous models edges sharpening with wear.
