This biner is obscenely, obnoxiously light. It's awesome. CAMP has taken the next step forward in wire gates in the design of the body, so it makes me very sad that they screwed up on the gate action. I have wiregates from Petzl, Wild Country, Metolius, OPac, and Mad Rock, and the wire gates are tuned perfectly, resulting in a great snappy feel: not too tight, and not too loose. Everybody else is doing it, so why can't CAMP? I feel like they concentrated so much on the engineering of the body that they ignored the gate construction completely. It's loose, bordering on floppy, and you worry that even with a wire gate, it might flutter open, sticking you with the low-as-is-legal open gate strength. I have two of these, but I won't be purchasing more until CAMP fixes the gate action. If you're looking for a good full size biner that's light and won't break the bank, check out the Wild Country Nitro. The only people who I'd even consider recommending this to are alpine climbers who are doing everything they can to cut every last ounce.
