Great for novices

Just like an ATC, but locks up like a seatbelt if the dead rope is dropped. Great for teaching novices and gives me an added sense of safety when being belayed by them, especially on lead.

Nice to belay with—pays slack really smoothly and you can lift the wing to lock it out if your partner is taking a rest (although it takes practice to do this smoothly).

You can supposedly rap on a single strand with it, but I'd definitely want an autoblock since you'd likely go FAST.

Downsides: heavy, doesn't work so well with fat gym ropes.

Ended up not really using it

Went back to my old ATC. Solely due to difficulties in lowering the climber. It's much too smooth and it doesn't help much in braking when you lower. It does block if you're lowering too fast on the other hand, which is good as backup, but could also get in the way.
Otherwise it's super easy to use, feeding rope to lead is a breeze.
You won't take it up a mountain, that's for sure, so the heaviness doesn't bother me at all.
