Topic - ATC Rope Diameters

alooker - on 14 Jan 2013
I'm stripping my rack down to be a bit lighter and found that I had an ATC from about 10 years ago that is much lighter than my guide plate.

I would've bought this when I started for belaying at the wall on 10.5mm+. Black diamond say that the ATC is good down to 7.7mm on their website - would that be the case with my ATC or have they changed the design for the skinny ropes nowadays?

I suspect that it'd be fine, but I want to know the limitations of it before I ditch the guide plate. And I don't have halves at home at the min to test for myself!

It looks like this, with a few more scratches:
