Bolt hangers can wreck havoc on lightweight wire-gate draws, especially if you're regularly whipping off a project and hang-dogging through sequences. To address the issue, DMM fitted its featherlight Alpha biners with hot-forged solid gates to make the Alpha VW Sport Quickdraw. The combination of durability, easy handling, effortless clipping, and a relatively low weight make this draw the perfect choice for sport climbers who expect their gear to work as hard as they do.
Overall this is a good draw. VW bones eliminate a lot of twisting to keep the biners oriented properly as much as possible. The bolt biner has a solid feel and very smooth action while the rope biner has a deep bend to make clipping a breeze. Almost never have to fiddle with the biner orientation or reclip due to the draw slipping.
