    I couldn’t find anything, but has anyone here ever used the Petzl ZigZag as your main tie on an SRT? Without using the rear eyelet and just the mechanical Pruzik? I hope this doesn’t sound dumb.

    It's not rated for srt and doesnt function very well like that. In fact it's likely dangerous as they have had issues with cracking.
    A few people have added a rope wrench above the zig zag and had really good results. Still not officially rated to work that way by petzl so use at your own risk.

    I recently saw a video on rope wrench use with it. I appreciate the feed back.
