Black Diamond Dynex Dogbone-14mmx18cm - Black Diamond Dynex Dogbone - Dynex Dogbones from Black Diamond are designed for easy quickdraw customization. Dynex material is strong, lightweight and abrasion resistant. Rubber inserts keep carabiners correctly oriented. Customize your quickdraws with Black Diamond Dynex Dogbones for reliable performance when it matters most.
These 10mm Dynex dogbones are a lighter-weight solution to traditional nylon, especially when you get to the larger sizes. They work just the same, but may be a little tricky for newer climber to use since they are so minimal. The large loop makes for a little bit of carabiner fumbling, but nothing that a rubber band wont fix.
I use 12cm and 18cm 14mm width BD Dogbones to make a custom quickdraw set. These dogbones are light, comfortable and feel bomber. The bolt-end loop is wide enough so there's no need to unclip the bolt-end binner to link two or more draws. The only drawback is that rubber insert on the rope end can be easily damaged. Not a World-class problem, but I would prefer Metolius JIG like design.
