First of all, the service from RR was excellent as always. The GriGri plus is far better than the original with the lock out function to prevent the panic pull which will be a big plus for beginners to the sport. The top rope/lead climb button is also a big bonus. People have given feedback on the fact that this switch can be a pain to unlock if you use the lock button, but I feel it adds to the security of the device and can easily be unlocked with anything small and pointy such as a key, personally I like the fact that the button can be locked. Three vibrant colours to choose from and the weight penalty on the rack is minimal especially if you use a figure 8. Overall well pleased with the purchase and it will get a lot of hammer in the years to come.
Works really well, adds a layer of safety/reassurance to belaying as an assisted braking device. So far haven’t found it too grabby even on thick fuzzy gym ropes, smooth lowering takes a small amount of time to develop the correct technique but once you get used to the device you can control the speed pretty well (older models were accused of being a bit on/off). All in all really happy with it. I paired it with a sm’d carabiner which being slightly smaller works really well and holds it at a nice level for belaying.
I have recently purchased this Grigri+. I am using it with a Black Diamond Magnetron carabiner. Together it is super quick and easy to use. There are other devices similar but I think the Grigri is a classic. I would certainly recommend it.
