Not Quite Heliums and a Typo
Minor axis strength in 7kN
Open gate strength in 9kN
The "less-less expensive no-hook nose" still allows the biner to occasionally snag on webbing and what not.
These aren't really a poor man's Helium. They're more comparable to a hotwire biner from BD. I'd give the nitro the edge though. Better action, a little stronger if gate opens, snags less, and much cooler looking to boot.
I'm tempted to use these as rope end biners and heliums for the bolt biners.
