Topic - Carabiner/belay

Darcshadow - on 24 May 2013
Hey,
So I'm getting into climbing, chosen my harness and I'm going to opt for a vc pro II or a black diamond atc xp belay... for my first carabiner I am looking at a Dmm aero screw gate as I like the colour, strength and heftyness, however they say rope radius 10mm-10.3mm or words to that effect, does this mean I will be limited in my rope choice? (I don't know what rope diam . My gym uses)... I will be belaying my mate who is heavier than me, will this carabiner do the job? I thought any pear/hms biner would belay fine, is there more technical aspects to it that I have missed? Thanks
