Beal Birdie

The Beal Birdie is an assisted braking belay device with the cam and friction parts in stainless steel to increase durability. This device works much the same as a GriGri, assisting braking should the climber fall, and utilising a similar kind of handle to lower the climber. The axis ensures the rope doesn't twist when going in or coming out of the device.

Nice piece of kit

I took the chance and ordered the Birdie over the Grigri. Tested it today and am very pleased :). Solid piece of kit, well made. Tested it with a 8.9, 9.8 and 10mm rope. The 8.9 is very easy to give out slack also when the climber is clipping, no need for extra tricks like with the grigri. Just push and pull the rope through. The system lock is reliable but it really takes a fall to activate. The 9. 8 and 10mm rope is also easy to feed out slack, no early lockups. But it takes a bit more finesse when paying out when clipping. Still no need to lock the cam. The system lock is beautiful with both 9.8 and 10 and lowering is a joy. Really happy with it!
I'll alternate the birdie with my BD atc pilot, still think the pilot doesn't get the love it deserves. Love the atc pilot when lead belaying, so smooth. Now got 2 solid pieces of gear I can belay my ass of with. Happy times to be :)
