Great Lead Belay DeviceI have been using a GriGri 2 since it was available. The Vergo looks similar and is almost identical in use to the GriGri for top rope belaying. In my opinion the Vergo is a better device for lead belaying. The use of the Vergo during lead belaying just feels natural. Every rope I have used pulls through the device without any issues. During a fall the Vergo locks up immediately. Unlike the GriGri there is no way to prevent the camming device from locking, which can be very dangerous to the climber during a fall. The quality of the Vergo is very good. The directions on how the rope should be inserted in the device are clearly printed on the Vergo.
