Thanks for the reply's, lots of good ideas.
I say mainly aid practice but that includes a bunch of laps as well. I had a great day on the NW outcrop last week on Grimulace, Virgo and Talamud. I'm happy with the traxion as the main device as it feeds well and when properly setup there's no potential for shock loading the toothed cam.
I have used the gri gri as the backup a few times and just had a standard dogbone with one loop into my Mallion and the other with a locker into the gri gri which allowed the gri gri to sit just above and offset to the trax.
The knots are a bit of phaff for sure but I'm also happy to pull in slack on the gri gri as it kind of simulates the phaff when leading and hopfully gets me stronger and better at locating rests etc.

I haven't looked into modding the gri gri but i'd like to put a keeper cord onto it for bigger routes. I'm hopefully putting it all together for Ozy later in the yr.

Happy to hear there's no issues with the way i'm doing it other than too much redundancy, better than the other way round!
