The Grigri 2 is Petzls new belay device with assisted braking for 8.9 to 11 mm rope. The Grigri 2 belay device with assisted braking is designed to facilitate belay maneuvers. The Grigri 2 works equally well for lead climbing and top roping. It may be used on all single dynamic 8.9 to 11 mm ropes on the market ideal at 9.4 mm to 10.3 mm. Both compact and ultra-light, the Grigri 2 will accompany you on climbs around the world for many years. The Grigri 2 has a new design that allows excellent control during the descent. PRODUCT FEATURES: Belay technique identical to classic belay systems: both hands on the rope. A fall is stopped by tightening the hand on the free end of the rope. Assisted braking capability: during fall arrest, the belayer holds the free end of the rope, the cam pivots and pinches the rope, increasing the braking action until the rope stops sliding. The Grigri 2 has a new design that allows excellent control during the descent. One hand holds the rope and the other uses the handle to unlock the cam. The patented handle design allows a very gradual release of the rope. In combination with the strong braking action of the cam, it gives a great feeling of control when lowering a partner or rappelling. The GRIGRI 2 is compact and ultra-light at 185 g 25 smaller and 20 lighter than the original Grigri The construction includes a stainless steel friction plate and cam to ensure a long life for the product For 8.9 to 11 mm single ropes ideal at 9.4 to 10.3 mm Weight-bearing climbing equipment is non-returnable.

If your thinking about it, do it. Pro's use it, super safe.... umm.... and its pretty.... :) I feel very comfortable being on the climbing side of this and can focus on what im doing knowing that it helps reduce human error (have seen a person drop 50 feet while top roping with a normal atc type, the atc was not the problem deff human error, but it wouldn't have happened with one of these, do yourself a favor and get it)

Great GRIGRI!!! 5 out of 5 stars

Great device. Great manufacturer. Catches your big whip and then lowers you like a champ.

I absolutely love this belaying device! It's quick, easy, and smooth when I'm bringing the climber down. A must have for top-rope! I do think for instance that it is a tiny bit over-priced, and I don't think you should buy one when beginning because you will get pretty used to the auto-locking feature and you will become less agile with a basic ATC. Overall, it's a great belay device and I recommend it for anyone who does TR!
