I currently use a DMM Bug belay device. I've recently splashed out on a set of 8.5mm half ropes (Mammut Genesis) for trad. 8.5mm is at the very bottom end of the Bug's rope diameter range and I am pondering whether it's worth using (or giving my belayer!) a new belay device with 8.5mm closer to the middle of its range to get a bit more bite?
Any thoughts/experience on Bug + 8.5mm's would be very much appreciated.
