Holy C**! These are nice biners. So easy to open. Definitely expensive. I only bought them since they were 25% off. Not sure they'd be work full price, but Im glad I got them.
I'm with Simon on this, the gate is too weak. It's an ok biner and I use it now and then, but it's definitely way down the list when I'm pulling gear out of my bag.
This carabiner has the expert craftsmanship I've come to expect from Black Diamond. I bought it specifically to rack my stoppers on, as I don't like the standard Ovalwire and wanted a keylock with a big basket.
Pros: Pretty big, square basket. Distinctive (and beautiful IMO) color that makes it easy to ID. Keylock means no snags
Cons: Weak gate spring so it opens accidentally sometimes. Heavy. About as expensive as non-lockers get. Lower basket is not that much bigger than a positron.
Overall, not a bad carabiner, and probably super nice on the bolt end of sport draws (its intended use). That said, you can do better for the dough.
Disclaimer: I only own one of these, which means it is possible (though unlikely) that the weak gate spring is an isolated issue.
