Petzl Reverso 3 wins Belay Device SuperTopo Recommend Award

MILL VALLEY,, one of the most popular climbing web sites in the world, revealed Petzl Reverso 3 as the winner of the 2010 Recommended award for the best belay device category. The staff rated the Petzl Reverso 3 after extensive field testing in Yosemite, Colorado, and Utah. The Petzl Reverso 3 also underwent extensive side by side tests with others in the belay device category to evaluate key performance metrics such as ease of use, performance, packability, durability and ease of lowering. The complete review is available on

According to gear tester Chris McNamara, "The Petzl Reverso 3 is our Editors' Choice for manual belay/auto–block belay devices. It’s like a sports car. It has sleek curves, excellent handling and is smooth to use. Nine times out of 10 we belay directly off the anchor when multipitch climbing so we need a great auto–block device. On big Yosemite free routes, we found our arms stayed fresher with the Reverso 3 as long as the rope was skinnier than 10mm. After a long day of getting high off the ground, you have to come down, and the Reverso 3 is extremely smooth for rappelling. It is pricey but worth every penny if you use it in auto-block mode. If you primarily belay off the anchor with thick ropes, then we would recommend the Mad Lock, GriGri or Cinch."

According to tester Chris Van Leuven, "The Reverso 3 is the best all-around device we tested. It does it all: lightweight, compact and great for belaying in auto–block mode or directly off the waist. It is not cheap, but it is worth the greenbacks. This is the smoothest belay/rappel/guide's device tested. It is the most common belay device you will see guides or experienced trad climbers using, whether in Yosemite or on The Diamond."
