Best and Safest Belay Device
The grigri 2 is an excellent assisted braking belay device. This can be the safest belay device out there if the operator knows how to use it, and uses it correctly. I've used this from top roping, sport climbing, and gym climbing. It works great in all applications. The assisted braking works perfectly, and you can lower the climber with excellent control. I have not used the original grigri but this one is great. I would recommend this to any climber, it is super safe and a great device.
