Very grippy and very easy to slide forward, but reversing is not as easy as the Petzl shunt, as the sharp teeth require the jaw to be fully disengaged from the rope. The pull point is on the rope line, which means that loading does not pull the basic and the rope diagonally, unlike in a shunt, if that matters now... Don't get this if you need a reverse gear, this one only goes up easily and then opens up and completely detaches from the rope.

My rating is more for the store. This place sold me a Petzl basic for 55 USD INCLUDING SHIPPING!! Usually these things are 85 bucks here in the US. The shipping was super fast. This came from Finland faster than plenty of items I’ve ordered that are shipped from the states. So this store is awesome. Will look to them going forward for more gear.

Basic rope grab. Move up easily and immediately take a decent grip. By itself, it worked well on a sloping roof for work (+ bristle securing).

When used as a lift handle, the position of the hand is less in the rear box than in the Ascension. I like it.
