these rock 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: brent_e, 2007-01-15


I've got to place these on most of the climbs I've got on and they are terrific. They don't have quite the versatility of the 360 regarding placement in tight spots, but they still have a small platform. I like them much better than BD's Turbo express. They rack nicely, too. as tallnik said, "what's not to like?" OH, they're cheap, too!

Super sharp teeth, the same thread pattern as the Grivel 360, great grip, easy to rack, lots of biners fit on it, small footprint ---> what's not to like? Nothing. I'm super happy with them, they start great, screw in super fast, and the reverse thread that grivel offers I find nice and comforting. Get 'em while they're still cheap. One thing that has come to mine for me is I wonder how long the plastic handle will last on them, and if Grivel will replace it for me if it breaks/I break it.
