    John, I really do not know of much in the way of online references for SRT. You can go to the National Speleological Society's chat page at www.forums.caves.org for some good discussions. Some good reference books are : On Rope by Bruce Smith and Allen Padget,and Vertical, by Alan Warild.

      John, Belaying with the I'D is actually easier I think. When you hold the I'D in the belay position (sideways) the rope will only come out as fast as the lowering (main line) is moving. If that mainline should fail the belay "I'D" would be forced back into it's normal position... in the locked position. A piece of hardware like this elimanates the belay from locking up because the belayer is not staying in sync with the main line.
