Mini Traxion 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: TradMan80, 2008-12-17

Conventional piece of equipment. Considering it is just the "Mini" Traxion. Have had mine for 6 years, never looked back. As mentioned before, care needed when knots are near - give yourself slack, because it can jam. Variety of tasks undertaken using the device no complaints from me.

Top rope self belay 3 out of 5 stars

Good positive catch, weighted rope feeds through pretty easy. Very hard on rope, a 2 or 3' fall can tear through the sheath of your rope. Because you attach it to your belay loop with a biner, it dangles down, the result is any fall is going to be almost a foot.

Review 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: niftydog, 2005-02-22

This has changed the way I do my rigging work. I no longer need a roadie holding the load for me while I work and I'm not stuck with some massive and heavy non-return hauling system at the anchor. Very compact (minimum headroom), easy to use and trustworthy.

Worth putting up with the downsides; fiddly to rig the rope, can jam if the knot is hauled up against the cheeks and there's no becket.

Also, when quickly feeding the unloaded rope down for another haul, the open cam sometimes catches the rope as it flicks up and unlatches itself, suddenly stopping the rope.

I use it all the time for self belaying on a fixed rope. Its a great substitute for not having a belay partner all the time. Plus it has so many other practical uses that make it a great peice of equipment to have. it usually runs you about 60 bucks bu ti found one online for 42 so it made it even better
