With all the idiocy surrounding the GriGri it might be time we throw the GriGri out and start having people belay with the I'D S. That belay device is pretty fullproof. If you thread the rope backwards it will lock. If you crank on the handle, the handle will disengage. If you need to take your hands off the rope, you can switch to the lock mode and the cam will pinch the rope and completely prevent it from moving in any direction. You can also do 250m raps with it and lower 150kg loads by yourself. It is like a GriGri on steroids. Maybe the next time I have to take a noob belay lead test at some random gym I will use this guy just to piss them off. Oh wait, if one cannot figure out a GriGri then...
