Hi All,

I have become rather keen on the CT Click UP after using one all week on a trip. Has anyone got one they wish to part with?

Happy to swap for a great condition GriGri 2 or cash.

Cheers

Did you not find that it twisted the rope.  I have one and love it apart from this annoying tendency.  I'd be keen to hear other peoples experiences with this device.

I found it no worse than other devices I've used to be honest. Used ropes from 9mm to 12mm and saw no difference.

I've heard this complaint before online, and always found it odd as I've never experienced a problem myself - the alpine-up has been main device for several years of living in the van in Spain, and a few of the partners I met along the way used the click-up. 

There must be some subtle thing in the way some people orient it that makes a difference?

Great belay devise used one now from the 1st month they came out not had many problems with it kinking the rope apart from my own fault of uncoiling a rope wrong when new.

This is the main reason you get rope kinking Lap coiling of ropes has made this a hell of a lot better and easier.

It's like any other belay devise you need to get used to it , the down side I go through at least 2 screw gates a year even the CT hardened new one you buy with the devise, but I do climb well over 500 sport routes a year with it plus my wife also .

I am waiting for CT to bring out a Stainless protected Karabiner similar to the Edelrid but with a belay loop spring .
