Great rope-end carabiner

One of my favorites on the rope-end of a draw or attached to pro. They have a really nice finish, are light, and exhibit a medium/medium-light gate action which makes for very easy clipping. The new hot-forged BD Hotwire is certainly comparable in all respects - the Hotwire has a noticeably stiffer gate, which can be good or bad depending on an individual's preference.
