This product has been replaced by the Petzl Micro Traxion
The Petzl Mini Traxion, this is the best and lightest hauling device for hauling small loads after the Petzl Micro Traxion. The Micro Traxion is an improvement on the Mini Traxion as it is lighter, smaller and more efficient at hauling. It is a little more expensive but worth it.
Most of the review below is about how the Mini Traxion performs as a big waul hauler. To read about how it performs when solo toproping, read our article
The Best Progress Capture Pulley or Ascender for Solo Self Belay Toproping.
The Mini Traxion's invention created a self-belay revolution. When it first came out big wall climbers were psyched to get a hauling device in such a small package. But over time the device gained even more acceptance for self-belaying both on big walls and the crags.
If you want the best bang for your buck for hauling, get the Rock Exotica Waul Hauler. If you are going to do a lot of walls and have some cash, then get the Petzl Pro Traxion and this one.
