I've run miles of line through my GiGi and it is still as smooth as the day I got it. Much better for belaying a second than alternatives, and serves as my backup ATC. I've been belayed when leading, just use 2 krabs like the manual shows. For long rappels, I also use 2 carabiners to reduce friction. Excellent gear.

DMM does it right. These are probably one of the best tools for wandering routes besides big slings and cheaper than double ropes! Don't place them too low on the pitch or you will transfer a lot more force to your belayer.
