Zig-Zag through the canopy in style! Review by Arborman76

I watched all the info on the ZZ when it first came out. I wanted one soooooo bad after seeing the function and features it has. I was fortunate enough to test drive one that Gary and Jared Abrojena were so nice to let us play with for a few days (Thanks Randy Hopp!) So I took the plunge and forked over the cash for this amazing tool! I am so impressed at its smooth operation, the self tending, and precise metering of rope! It all ads up to a pro looking, user friendly, fantastic all around modern tool! The only drawback (not really) is it can not be mid-line attached.

Makes DRT climbing so much easier than tending a blakes hitch. You can tighten up the rope with one hand and makes limb walking faster and easier. Price really isn't that bad for the quality of the product. Just break down and buy it, it'll be your favorite piece of equipment (Posted on 10/6/2016)

Very smooth with lots of control Review by Alan B.

Very smooth. Lots of control. I switched from using a vt to this zigzag and i am very glad i did. The only draw backs is that it is double rope and not SRT, and you cant just unattach from the rope at any point in the tree without feeding it thru, but the benefits are far better. I just leave mine attached to my rope all the time and store it in my bag. (Posted on 6/15/2016)

I am new to tree climbing and learned rope climbing using the basics beginners knots. When I saw the video of the Petzl ZIGZAG it was love at first sight. I ordered it and now I am having a blast playing a arborist. It's easy to learn and easy to use. No clutter ! (Posted on 1/24/2015)
Glides smooth Review by Mike Oxendine

Great product, only thing you need to know that I didn't when making the purchase; your rope can not have sliced eyes on both ends or you can't feed the rope through the zig zag to get it set-up. Also 13 mm blue streak is as large a rope as you could use. Other than that this is a great product I would recommend getting. Remember once its on your rope its best to leave it set up, because its a pain to put it on an take it off long ropes with spliced eyes. (Posted on 11/4/2014)

I was blown away how user friendly the ZigZag really is. being able to control descent with so precisely with only two fingers is a good confidence booster. Ive climbed also on the spiderjack and after using the ZigZag im going to sell the spiderjack. The zigZag is $100 cheaper and in my opinion way more comfortable to use. Also having the built in swivel is nice and its pretty streamline and doesn't get in the way. I would recommend this to any new or experienced climber looking for a smooth reliable friction hitch (Posted on 4/21/2014)
