Petzl GRIGRI +
The GriGri + is Petzl's latest version of the world's most popular assisted-braking device, now designed to be easier and safer to use by beginners. The GriGri + now features an anti-panic handle that, if the handle is let go or pulled too far back, will brake and stop the descent automatically, making it more ideal for the novice user who isn't familiar with GriGri technique. A patented switch has now been introduced to allow the belayer to switch between lead belaying and top roping modes for more comfortable and secure top roping, and the useable rope width has increased to make the device compatible with all single rope sizes.
With a focus on safety and security, the Petzl GriGri + is suited to both beginners who are either looking for an easy-to-use assisted-braking device or for a stepping stone into proper GriGri technique. It's also ideal for groups, such as rental programs, schools, and climbing gyms, who are in need of a more intuitive assisted-braking device that reduces the chance of human error.

This is my first Gri Gri and it has given me confidence in climbing with less experienced people. I also use it for lead climbing for which it does the perfect job. Great over all!
I love this one and I rekomended this to all my friends so now they going to get one for them self.
If you have the thoughts to but a Grigri2 you should put the extra money in and get the Grigri+. You have then anti panic works really good and you can switch between trad climbing and top rope!
The final thing to say that is just really awsome
