Hi Louise, The devices look very similar but the key difference lies in the cam. The ropeman 1 has an aluminium cam which makes it lighter but as a result can't be so intricately designed. The ropeman 2 has a steel cam which is strong enough to allow Wild Country to inlay it with small sharp teeth, similar to the petzl tibloc. The consequences of the teeth mean that the ropeman 2 works with a greater range of ropes, from 8-13mm, whereas the ropeman 1 is only intended to be used with ropes from 10-13mm. Hope that helps, Dave
