Petzl Rig (New Model)
If you are using a Gri Gri for setting you need to enter the modern world, the RIG is sooo much better... We first used it on a IRATA course a number of years ago and immediately switched all of our route setting kit over, there is no comparison. You can belay with it as well (although takes a bit of getting used to for lead belaying).
Compact self-braking descender
RIG is a compact self-braking descender designed for experienced rope access workers. It has an ergonomic handle that allows comfortable descent control. The AUTO-LOCK system allows users to easily position themselves at the work station without having to manipulate the handle or tie off the device. Once locked, the rope can be taken up without having to manipulate the handle. The safety gate allows the rope to be installed with the device remaining connected to the harness, facilitating passage of intermediate anchors. The stainless steel wear plate improves durability by reinforcing the rope friction zone.
