New belay protection device

Putzel announced a further development in its design of increasingly efficient belay devices. Similar to the GriGri, it has a more bulbous top end, from where the rope to the climber extends, and a more triangular bottom end, from which the braking end leaves. Although made of a molecularly softer metal than the GriGri, because of its different annealing process, it is actually stronger and able to withstand greater force. They are calling it the GaGa.
