Is the Grigri any better than other auto locking devices?

I think that simpler systems like Mammut Smart are even safer because a lot of people misuse GriGri and block it open when they are belaying! If you know what you are doing, they're all equal I think!

I'm a big fan of Mammut Smart as well, super simple, reliable and logical to use.

It certainly has better marketing. Petzl have made it synonymous with "auto-locking belay."

No idea, but I've used a bog standard ATC for my whole climbing life (well, not true, cause started with a stitch plate...), and I'm not in the slightest interested in these fancy shmancy auto locking things :D
