I have always used a Gri Gri now I have come to own an Edelrid EDDY. Never used an Eddy but from what i've heard its better all round.

Ad feedback here........

Lots of previous topics on this... i prefer my Eddy. Takes a bit of getting used to at first but works smoother and more reliably than gri gri. Feels safer as well.

I want one. I want one. I want one....

It's my next purchase after I get back from Tassie.

Did I mention that I want one?

Check out the post by Healyje at near the bottom of this page....he's got the eddy dialed. And gives great comparisons with other devices, pros/cons etc.

(The linked thread is specifically referring to roped soloing.)


Here, he mentions that he ONLY uses it for soloing(he posts as JosephH): http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/747909/fpart/1

"JosephH -- I use an Eddy only for lead roped-soloing, I don't use it for anything else. The direction of the rope feed in the Eddy that makes it so good for lead roped-soloing makes it less than ideal for TR soloing, though that's the mode I use it in for seconding all my solo pitches so it's not that bad. Personally if I were doing the TR thing I'd do double minitraxions deal or just use a regular grigri. "

Interesting...

I actually top roped with mine for the first time yesterday. Seemed to work ok. I didn't notice any major difference between it and a gri gri.
