The Vergo is a new belay device from Trango.
Similar in style to the old Cinch, the Vergo is wonderfully simplified and designed to sit comfortably and logically in hand.
All in all a very neat unit.
A competitor to the Grigri and other auto locking devices, this works in a slightly different way. The device will always lock when in the vertical position, but while rotated sideways and pinched between the thumb and index finger it will pay out very smoothly. This does take some getting used to, however, it provides a very predictable, consistent experience.
