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.
Overall the grigri Plus is a fair bit of kit, very user friendly and effortless to use. Took a few sessions to get used to the handle and paying out slack for leading. One your get used to it, it's plain sailing.
From my point of view, Petzl really thought how to improve the Grigri1 after the 'fiasco' of the Grigri2. The top rope options it's so good when teaching per example or when you don't have so much experience.
