Vergo Belay Device

Trango's new Vergo Belay Device brings the assisted braking device to whole new levels of safety and ergonomics for sport climbers and multi-pitch trad climbers. Unlike most assisted braking devices, the Vergo's safest way to use is also the smoothest. Clear visual and physical indicators make the Vergo easy to learn and even easier to use safely. Where most assisted braking devices require you to feed slack upwards, thereby causing shoulder strain, the Vergo promotes a natural process by feeding slack leftwards. It's nearly impossible to override the Vergo even if you're mishandling it, especially when compared to to standard assisted braking devices that require you to override the device for a millisecond (or longer) in order to dish out slack, lower climbers, or allow climbers to continue climbing after taking. The Vergo also works as a guide mode when you're belaying someone from anchors on a multi-pitch.

Rope out faster, better for top belaying

I've put it through the wringer
5' 3"

Been using the vergo for several years. While I like it in the single-pitch scenario for getting rope to your cruxing-out-but-almost-sending-the-gnar climbing partner wayyyy faster than a gri gri, I think it's true stand out moments are in the multipitch setting. It is just easier, more intuitive and faster to get your follower on belay than with a gri gri or and atc. Something I really appreciate on days where transition speed matters.

Easy & fast getting rope to climber

I've put it through the wringer
5' 8"

This is my go-to belay device! There is a little learning curve but once you feel and master the smoothness dishing slack to the left, your climber will not have to worry about getting short-roped. I absolutely love the ergonomic finger and thumb guides for my brake hand which aligns the rope perfectly in my hand always ready for a great catch! Excellent on skinny ropes too!!! Super smooth lowering takes some practice and one star away from this stellar device!

It's excellent and it's not a GriGri

I've put it through the wringer

I've used this thing for several years now and I love it so much. It takes a little bit of learning to feel super comfortable with it, but the small learning curve is well worth it. Feeding and managing slack is just so much smoother than a GriGri. After using GriGris for years, I now cringe when I have to use someone's GriGri to belay. The only reason this gets 4 stars is because lowering control isn't as good as I would like it to be when the climber is substantially heavier than the belayer. That's the only situation in which I prefer a GriGri. In summary, give something new a chance!
