If you like the freedom of climbing and pulling your own rope through on the fly, this is the best and safest.
Only uses 9 mm max rope, very light in tree work.

When I began climbing a couple of years ago, one problem became immediately apparent - the weight difference between my girlfriend/climbing partner and myself: 80kg - 48kg. As we were both inexperienced, I wanted to buy a foolproof device which would hold me no matter what I or my girlfriend did.
Looking around I decided that the extra cost of the "eddy" would be worth it as it locks the rope no matter what you do. Two years later, I am completely happy with my choice - it is easy to use, robust and, most importantly, makes me feel totally safe when on a wall. Whilst too heavy for alpine climbing it is ideal for base climbs where the weight is not an issue.
