Product Description

An evolution from the classic best selling VC, the new VC Pro features 'V' grooves to give belaying a ‘bite’ and simple organic shape, making this a modern, lightweight device that is truly confidence inspiring.

The VC Pro's design is based on the principles so effectively demonstrated by the success of the original VC, that any all-around device needs to do the three essentials well: paying out quickly, holding falls securely and abseiling safely. The VC Pro takes this one step further by doing this brilliantly across a wider, more modern range of rope sizes, from 8mm to 10.5mm.


-Precisely machined grooves clamp down on ropes from 8mm to 11mm

Dan DaltonA really great rap...

Voted 5/5

device. Sometime a pain to belay with though because there is too much friction making pay out of the rope hard. The wire is not as stiff as a ATC, so I think this is part of the problem too. Because of this, I use this device to rapping only, I know that it will hold any rope I use with it.
