We got one of these as a gift while on one of our 6 month climbing road trips. Its not the device for fat ropes, but since we only climb on skinny strings these days it works great. If you are headed into the mountains with doubles or a single skinny rope, you will be happy to have one of these on your harness. They really shine on long raps when you need a bit of extra friction to slow things down.

The ability to do everything the Kong Gi-Gi can do, plus belay a leader was a brilliant move by Petzl. I'm very thankful that they created this device as it has made other companies step up innovation and create better gear. I don't feel that anyone has come up with a better answer though. The only reason you don't find one on my harness full time is the additional friction needed to pull a rope through the device. The metal frame that keeps the carabiner from twisting is a great feature. The frame also allows relatively easy flip- ability of this device so that you can release it, which is great if your friends or client run outa gas half way up the climbing route you are on. The only other downer about this great Petzl tool is that it does become grooved out and sharp, such that its life isn't as long as it should be.
