1. The diagrams on the device are very straight forward, but you need to take care when lacing it up with your rope. Friction goes one way on this device, so you need to get the rope going in the right direction.
2. Construction is sturdy. Yes there is some plastic in this device, but I've dropped mine several times and the outer shell is metal, taking the brunt of an impact. So it stands up well.
3. For basic belaying, you may find that this device adds some reassurance for the person on belay and the belayer. This is because it locks up more automatically than a standard belay tool.
4. Now, this may be controversial for some, I'm going to just put it out there that this can be used as a solo-belay tool when using a fixed top rope. This means threading it with the fixed point as the "climber," which may seem counter intuitive at first. But I've done this many times for two years now, and the device works well as a solo-tool. Some may find this unorthodox, but it's nice to have a belay device that LOCKS UP so you can be hands free.
5. The reason I've used this as a solo belay device is for jobs like roofing and tree work. So if you're looking for a tool to keep you on your rope and tight, this one works well.
Overall, I think you'll agree that Petzl makes great climbing gear. I have several belay devices, but this is my go-to tool in many situations.
This is not an auto locking device, it is assisted breaking though so as a climber I have a little bit more piece of mind with a belayer using this device over a classic tube style device in the off chance that my belay gets knocked out by a falling rock and is no longer able to maintain a hand on the break strand.
I went with the GRIGRI for ease of use and fail-safe reliability. Sunny Sunday afternoon: Handed him the GRIGRI and asked him to get me on belay. He could follow the easy instructions on the device without any confusion. Walked him through how to release the device and what happens when the lever is released. For this first run through we picked an easy sport route on overhanging limestone. Knowing the route well (having had my butt handed to me on it before) I knew i would take a fall in a safe spot. I lined up my usual climbing partner as a back up and took off. About 40 feet up I arrived at the crux and pushed through. Taking a glance down I saw he was ready then I let go. The GRIGRI did its job perfectly and I got a nice soft catch. It was a huge confidence builder for my son who knew he could handle a fall from me safely.
Since that day we have been up several other multipitch climbs with similar results. Perfect product for a product that needs to be 100% perfect. The only caveat is to make sure your belayer has good technique or you will end up with a lazy belayer. It would be nice if it could accommodate smaller ropes as rope sizes are getting smaller and smaller.
It feels super sturdy. These Assisted-Breaking ones are much better than the tubular ones, so if you're new to rock-climbing and feeling iffy about belaying, this is definitely the safer choice. Tubular ones have more flexibility but these Assisted Breaking ones make sure your partner doesn't slip much if you weren't paying attention to them.
