Gotta have the Grigri

In short, I love it and I'm happy I dropped the money on it. I was lucky to find it on sale on Backcountry, but even if I hadn't, I'd still recommend you buy it.
The main reason is added safety. I find that I appreciate it most after hours of climbing when my hands are dead. It's at that point when I'm happy I have just an extra measure of safety.
It's light and works really easy - the only problem is sometimes the crappy ropes at your gym won't feed through it as well as you'd like.
