Having seen reviews for the revo on youtube etc and not been impressed with some of the attitude towards it I feel the need to put in something positive. I am an old climber who started climbing when you belayed over your shoulder, and started again a while ago as a means of getting fit after a bad injury. I was bought a REVO for christmas and have given it a go at the local climbing wall .... it is the best thing since sliced bread and I cannot fault its claims My belay partner who I outweigh by 3 stone, helped me test it in the following ways. 1 - Straight forward climb up and then lower down, it is very light to the touch with low friction letting out and taking in rope but plenty of grab when needed, catching a fall or lowering down in a controlled manner 2 - We did a static test , just hanging on the rope and the belayer just letting go of the rope - it locked out immediately , but would reset with just a downward pull of the rope 3 - Then the big one, we did a leap of faith, I got my partner to let go of the rope all together and i jumped from the wall !!! it caught my weight and brought me to a stop inside a meter and a half , it might have been less if my belay partner had not come off the ground All in all it does exactly what it should. AND does it well
