Topic - Belay Device Sticking

ryanrawlings on 18 May 2012
Went for my first tope rope session after finishing a beginners course at ROKT in Brighouse with Andy Cornfield. Used a Climb X Harness set that I got for 30 from gooutdoors, the harness is really comfortable far better than the ones used on the course but the belay device that looks like a cheap ATC XP copy kept being constantly tight was really hard to pull the rope through unlike the ones we used on the course. I was going to ask Andy for advice but he's gone to Namibia to film a climbing video so thought I would ask here. Should I get a different device/carabiner or is it a technique issue. The device we used on the course was an edelrid that looked like a petzl reverse 3 should I buy one of these? Any help would be much appreciated.
