- Q & A
Not backwards compatible with old nomics
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These do not work with the penultimate version of the nomic. The screw hole doesn't line up properly, and the new screw is too fat to fit in the old nomic bore hole. Using the thinner screw from the old version of the griprest you can mount this new griprest in the medium position (there are small, medium and large configurations), but it is not a confidence inspiring interface. The pommel doesn't come up flush against the grip on the old tools when mounted like this, and it looks like it the griprest/pommel might lever off, and with sufficient weight just shear through the screw. Most likely they only work for the new nomic and the ergonomic. People at Petzl seem to be taking a page out of Apple's playbook and trying to force you to upgrade your tools to benefit from any of the new features.
