Dmm Phantom Carabiner 5 Pack -
Each of your carabiners may only weigh a few ounces, but multiply that by your fifty cams and you're carrying a rather rotund child in 'biners alone. The DMM Phantom Carabiner 5 Pack trims the fat to help increase your efficiency for demanding traditional and aid climbing. The Phantom uses DMM's I-Beam technology (the spine resembles a steel I-beam) and a lightweight alloy for strength and weight reduction, and the custom bent wire gate pulls itself into the nose when weighted. A steep basket and a slight rope groove keep the Phantom loaded along the spine. DMM anodized each Phantom in the 5 pack in a different color to match your cams or to add a little rainbow flair.

Fabric:

  • I Beam construction for strength/lightness

Features:

  • 8.5mm load bearing surface for better rope, slings or wire distribution
  • Wire gate less likely to freeze up in winter
  • Rope groove to locate rope correctly
  • Even tension gate
  • Hot Forged

The Phantom is DMM's super light carabiner and they are rather proud of its specifications. Weighing in at a meagre 26g DMM has managed to keep it both large enough to be functional, and super safe with a 9kN gate open strength. All the standard DMM characteristics are present in the Phantom - a customised wire gate that pulls into the nose under load, a rope groove, a fully anodised finish and the 'even tension' gate. The Phantom takes I-Beam hot forging technology to the next level by using a new, stronger 7000 series alloy and a bespoke wire on the gate that shaves off the extra grams still maintaining ergonomics and strength.
The Phantom 5 pack contains red, blue, green, gold and purple carabiners, allowing climbers to color code their cams and other equipment for easy recognition.

Positive Reviews:

I bought a set of these for a few of my doubles sizes. The rest of my cams are on DMM Spectre biners.
The first thing I noticed about these biners was how small they are. Don't be fooled, they are small.
The second thing I noticed was their awesome design and clear/fluid gate action. These carabiners are very easy to use.
At first I thought that their small size would make them difficult to clip, but after taking them out a couple times I started reaching for these before my Spectres for easy clipping.
These may not be the best multi purpose wiregate out there, but for those looking for a fantastic racking biner that is lightweight and clips well, the Phantom is king.

These biners directly compete with BD Neutrinos. When comparing wieght they are 26g which is 10g lighter than neutrinos. The only biners that are lighter are CAMP 23s or Metolius F.S. Mini both of which are smaller than this biner. Strength wise these biners also have stronger open gate strength. From a subjective point of view I find the gates to operate smoother and the bright anodizing makes them look cool and stand out on your rack. The only downside is the price which I overcame when they where 20% off.

For a small carabiner this has really good gate action. It's not so stiff and dead feeling like some others. The gate size is not big, but plenty big to clip a rope easily. I'll be buying more to rack gear and keep the weight down.

Ryan Hamilton at Backcountry.com on 09/08/2011

Nice 'biners that come in a useful set of colors for coding up a rack, lighter than the BD Neutrinos, just a tad bit smaller than a Trango Superfly. For general purpose use I'd go with something cheaper or regular sized though.

I got a couple of these to make some draws out of some spare bones i had and they make for THE lightest draws i have awesome colors and smooth gate and no issues with clipping

These lightweight binners are the best BD Camalot #0.5-3 companion - have the same colors and weight much less then BD Neutrino. The gate clearance is pretty good.

Neutral Reviews:

Nice fit and finish. Small carbiner, good for those long approaches. The big problem is the big price. Suggest a Wild Country Astro to save some $. I don't mind a few extra grams, and prefer a regular sized carabiner, so I go with WC Heliums or Nitros.
