I'm looking for a brake to use in my slackline tensioning system. Are there any alternatives to the Petzl Gri Gri?

Hi Rob, There are now several devices similar to the Petzl Grigri. One device I have seen used in several slackline rigs is the Edelrid Eddy which for one reason or another, just feels a little bit more sturdy in this situation. If you are planning on rigging very long lines then you might consider getting something even bigger such as the Petzl ID. Hope that helps, Dave
