Hi there

I have owned both and prefer the BD Guide, it is a little heavier (10g) but seems smoother in action, it also bites better and so is better for narrow ropes than the Reverso 3.

I have no complaints about the Reverso 3 the BD just seems to work a little better. If you haven't used both you would not be disappointed with the Reverso 3.
Happy climbing
