Better than the mini traxion in most ways

4 July 2016
It's much smaller and more efficient than the original mini traxion. The pulley runs smoother for solo top rope, and you don't feel it run up the rope at all. It feels very well made and it's easy to open and close it. The only negative thing I have to say about it, could also be considered a positive. That is that the cam doesn't lock back out the way that well, so if you leave the device on the rope when you descend the teeth of the cam can catch the rope and lock it off. However this is probably a good safety feature too, as if you did forget to somehow engage the cam before doing a lap, then chances are very high that it would engage anyway. This also isn't a concern if you only use the traxion for hauling or ascending the rope. By the way these are great when paired with a single jumar for ascending the rope (Use a Z-haul off the jumar from the traxion).
