I look forward to it.

Though I'll most likely be reading it on their website. It seems the the one gym in my area that was getting the magazine stopped receiving them. Frown

Way more effective than any commercial/ad I read/saw for the grigri2.

Well, here's my review on the new GriGri.

I used it today. I have had a GriGri for close to twenty years. It's a great device. The new and improved version is a VAST improvement. I really like this device.

This is the setup I used today:

10.3 mil Sterling bi-colored rope, dry treated, brand new (read slick).

My partner was leading, then we top roped another route next to the first one. Paying out slack was a dream. Lowering was a dream as well. I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with this device. I have never used a Cinch so I cannot compare the two, but I LOVE THE NEW GRIGRI!

The difference in size and weight is also a HUGE improvement.

Petzl definitely hit the nail on the head with this one!!!!

On thinner ropes (up to my 10.2 BW) you can use it Like a tube device( reverso/atc) and use the NEW belay technique for any jambs. So make sure to read the instructions to get the most out of it.
I Hardly used my old grirgi. This ones going everywhere with me
