1- from a climber POV, the rope can run straight through this device and allow you to use foot and knee ascenders - something you can’t do on a grigri / RIG / ID etcAm I missing something? The Grigri 2 & + seem far superior to this. More rope compatibility and much cheaper, the 2 is anyway. What benefit does this offer over the grigris?
So have you preordered an akimbo ?There are more videos on that channel, but its mostly rope access, rescue oriented. The takeway is that you can use foot ascenders with a grigri style descender.
for 10-11mm rope
They seem to sell for around 155 euro / 180 usd, plus shipping.
I'm looking for something similar to a Petzl GriGri or Rig, that wont hockle my kernmantle line to death. Sometimes I tend the rope over the front lip of the Rig to avoid it but I know how touchy they can be if you arent tending the rope correctly.
If I'm not limb walking, I just want something really simple to set up. The wrench takes a minute, and I'm not ready to buy a Rope Runner since the RR2 and the Akimbo are out next year.
That explains it really well thanks KevinNo it's totally different. Those are descent devices or belay devices. The taz is a true multicender.
Yes, it has a grigri handle; yes, it can move up the rope vertically like the Lift. It does both in 1 device, and it’s certified for use around the world and it’s midline atttachable AND it can be used as a fall-arrest device AND it can descend diagonally^I think I know why the gri isn't "safe" for work positioning...because if you let up on the tension, it can relax and then you have a jolt as it abruptly regrabs the line when you retension the line.
This device makes me think it's a combination of the Camp Lift and the Petzl Grigri.
I wanna see the guts of this thing. Are there any pictures of the innerds?
It's too bad it's so narrow in size of rope allowed. I won't be able to use it for that reason alone.
I shouldn't speak for him, but I think he'd likes to bike/hike to go tree camping and wants to travel light. Ounces add up. Sterling makes HTP in 9 mm. Dynamic rope in a device like that would probably be a disaster.Prolly 9mm dynamic for rock climbing if his avatar is any indication. Or is that a tree trunk that he's on? Maybe it is static.
