Black Diamond Positron Quickdraw.
The bent/straight gates of the Black Diamond Positron Quickdraw makes it easy to tell which end is rope and which end is bolt. They are solid gate quick-draw with smooth snag free clipping gates, the sling is sewn up between the biners and it keeps them from spinning around, or falling into an awkward position. With a lightweight and durable Dynex dogbone, it would be easy to grab, and whether you're clipping bolts at the crag or extending placements in the alpine. These quick-draws provide full key-lock functionality for hassle-free clipping and cleaning. Lightweight and smooth clipping design eliminates snags whether you're cranking on sport routes or extending gear placements, and the integrated Straitjacket insert keeps the bottom biner in the optimal clipping position. The light-weight sling of the Black Diamond Positron Quickdraw holds securely to the bent gate and is flexible enough to prevent the rope from interfering with the gate, even when clipped "backward" or wandering above your clip.

I've had these for 3 years, and they've withstood a lot of random conditions. They still look great, and obviously have worked out well with falls. The early production of this carabiner had some issues with small burrs where the gate closed on the keylock. They seemed to have solved this issue, and through all the wear and tear the dogbone has stood up nicely as well.
I have two of these bad boys and they are always my first QD on the wall. I dont know why, but I just like the feel and the strong "clip" it makes when you put it on. Very strong and easy to use, I think these are the best QDs out there personally.
The narrow dogbones were a bit unnerving, since I had some older, wider, Petzls before. But they're rated to 22kN so if manage to break them I did something way wrong anyway. Aside from that, the biners are as smooth as I'd expect from Black Diamond.
These draws are great!
They're pretty much an upgraded version of the BD quicksilver draws, in that they changed the gate so that it won't snag anymore. Lightweight, versatile, awesome.
If you aren't a fan of wiregates, you can't go wrong with these.
I use these all the time for sport climbing/ setting up a top rope of of fixed anchors and they are the bomb. Easy to clip and unclip, solid gates, and nothing cheap feeling about them.
