Top positron biner feels nice in the hand, super smooth on the clips, and is slightly smaller than the hotwire bottom. Bottom hotwire biner is incredibly light for its size due to the hotforging, is slightly larger giving that massive gate opening, and feels great in your hand! . . Did I mention smooth and effortless rope clipping?
Dogbones are 14mm wide now which makes them much less prone to twisting than the older 10mm ones, and even easier to clip. Only thing I don't like about the BD dogbones are the rubber inserts on the bottom loop as they are sensitive to tearing out if you're swapping bottom biners. Good thing you'll never need too. .
I got a set of these and swapped out the dogbone for the thick, black BD vari-widths. Absolutely love them top to bottom now, effortless clipping to hangers and cleaning, rope clip is as sure and effortless as possible (less than hoodwires imo). Very happy with these biners and was surprised at how much I like them relative to more expensive biners. Very good value biners but I definitely prefer a thicker dogbone.
I just got ten of these as part of my first rack, and I couldn't be happier. They clip well and are designed well. Particularly compared with friends' cheaper brand biners these are awesome... the gates don't stick, the biners don't move around on the dogbones (my friend's draw actually rotated so the rope was running across the gate... yikes). Totally worth the money.
i used them almost daily on a year-long climbing trip in asia and they definitely have withstood the beating. they are not the lightest draws to travel with, so i recently purchased a set of wild country ultralight draw for that, but for general sport cragging they are very good, especially at the price!
I love these draws. I got a few of the 18cm to add a few longer ones to my rack for different situations. they are relatively light and the wire gate makes for nice clipping. Black Diamond makes bomber gear and each caribiner holds 25kn which is pretty good for the price.
These draws are awesome, I used them four times a week all summer and couldnt be more stoked. Light weight and I swear they are like rope magnets. Clipping is easier than chalking up. Get some and go have some fun!
These quickdraws have no place in my rack. I bought the 18cm ones, since I do a lot of trad. These things are too heavy for trad for sure, but I understand they are mostly intended for sport. Still, for sport, there are much better options for just a couple pennies more that these are not worth the saving.
In all fairness, the gate of the draws open extremely well and clipping them is comfortable, but they are just too big and heavy.
