Cream of the crop
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
There are numerous auto-belay devices out there now, but the grigri is still the king. The size of the grigri2 makes it very lightweight and comfortable to handle. It feeds SO smooth with proper technique and lowers even smoother. The automatic locking on falls makes it very safe incase you have a bozo belaying you. The orange is a very attractive color and the build quality is amazing. I would highly recommend this over any other belay device: Its a must have!!!
