Topic - Petzl Reverso 4 or ATC Guide?

CurlyStevo - on 19 Jun 2012
Hi,
Which of these plates is better? primary use is on 8 - 8.5mm ropes when I will want to use autobloc mode (as well as for lead belaying when not leading), belaying 1 or 2 seconds. I realise there is an issue that these devices are not hands off when belaying two seconds.

Reviews I have read suggest the Reverso 4 is better on skinny ropes, however petzl only rate the device to 8.5mm ropes when belaying two seconds in autobloc mode and my ropes are currently 8mm (I realise with skinny ropes you do sacrafice some safety here). Is this just petzl covering there back / BD not supplying info? Is the ATC guide actually better in this regard?

Thanks,
Stevo
