Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spendy, but useful when you're belaying someone heavier than you I got my Freino after struggling to lower my heavier boyfriend with a gri-gri after climbing. I had tried plenty of things to increase friction to a point where he could have a smooth ride back down with varying degrees of success but the Freino solved the problem perfectly. The extra bend in the rope created when using the Freino is just what we needed. He feels more comfortable, I don't get burned hands, things are faster, and it looks awesome. Its solid and secure and I trust it completely. Great combo with the gri-gri.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pony does just one totally awesome trick so this biner was designed to be used with the grigri, BUT, it's even more useful when combined with a standard tube style ATC like the BD guide ATC. Why? Because you can lock off a hanging partner by clipping the rope through the hook for more friction. the added bend in the rope binds the rope and lets you relax a bit instead of cranking down on your break hand like usual. it gives you the simplicity of a standard ATC with the lock off convenience of a grigri.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not vital, but definitely amazing. I use it mainly with a Petzl Grigri, and the added control on descents is untouchable compared to the Grigri's lip alone, a hip, or even a straight second carabiner. It also provides a perfect fit to the Grigri making set-up\break-down effortless and keeping everything in place securely for your ride up while belaying a 50 foot whipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for ropes skinnier 9.8. This device creates an extra friction point for lowering folks on skinny ropes. I can't see using a 9.5 without either a pair of good gloves or a Freino. Plus, it's mildly entertaining to watch other climbers try and use it for the first time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They should add another clip to everything. It's really not as fantastic as everyone makes it sound, although I admit, it's pretty handy. I like it, but is it worth the extra cost? I guess that depends on how much you use your grigri.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Who knew a beautiful piece of extra aluminum could add piece of mind and safety I bought this for my lady friend so that she could more effectively belay/lower climbers that are heavier than she is. So far, so good, the extra friction that it provides is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got to get another one. Love the double hook. I can use it for all sorts of things, not just climbing.
