Brand new from DMM. Looks good and is lighter than the Verso. I feel it is better suited to sub 10mm ropes.
The classic belay device made better. Using the same high performance internal geometry as the Pivot, the Mantis is an incredibly lightweight belay device for use with either single or half ropes in situations where direct belaying is not required; perfect for the climbing wall and general cragging. The carefully sculpted rope grooves offer a greater grip on ropes from 7.5mm to 11m, the rope slots allow easy loading, and the rear of the device ensures adequate lift-off for snag-free paying out. If you are after a lightweight, high performance all-rounder, then the Mantis fits the bill perfectly.
- High performance belay device
