Street Price: $33 | Compare prices at 1 resellers
Pros: Lightweight, compact, smooth rope handling
Cons: Not as durable as competitors, too much friction on ropes bigger than 10mm
Best Uses: Autoblock belaying, lead climbing, rappel, fast and light climbs
The Petal Reverso 4 replaced the 3 in 2012. The 4 is lighter, has a larger carabiner hole to help releasing it after being locked up. See our complete Belay Device Review to see how the 4 competes against the competition. If you still have the Reverso 3, don't worry. It's an awesome device and it's hard to tell that much difference between the Reverso 3 and 4.
