Topic - What sort of Belay Device do people like/should I buy next?

Boulderdash86 on 04 Oct 2012
I have 2 at the moment (BD ATC (which I'm thinking of retiring) and a Petzl Verso (which hardly gets used at all). I want to know what are people's favourite type - my main reason for asking is now I'm progressing into Winter stuff and looking at doing SPA assessment in the future as I have done the training, is it worth saving up and buying either the Mammut - Smart Apline/ Petzl Reverso 4/ BD ATC Guide or suggest another one?

What are the advantages with these ones, how do they cope with frozen ropes/ how have people got on with them etc etc

Just for interest - I was out climbing with some friends at the weekend and one had the Smart Alpine and one had the ATC Guide and both seemed to work very well with taking the belayer out of the system, and arresting falls.
