Have to agree with M8 there. A friend in Adelaide injured his back using a petzl basic and a fixed static line.

I have used a fixed dynamic line and a magic plate (or plaquette if you're from europe)with no rope or sheath damage whatsoever. Magic plates or petzl reverso's are also commonly used for roped soloing in the mountains, where iced up ropes or weight are of concern. This set-up is however not as nice as a modified gri-gri or silent partner, due to frictional losses.
