Petzl Spirit performance at 2/3 the weight

I think everyone loves the Petzl Spirit carabiners, but they're expensive and kind of heavy. These won't save much money over the Spirits but they perform just as well and only weigh 34 grams. The description has this listed as a wire gate, you can see from the picture that is not the case. Gate action is nice and strong. Add in a keylock nose and you can't go wrong. I paired these up with some Black Diamond dogbones to make my favorite new quickdraws.

Update to this. I own a bunch of different carabiners and quickdraws and the draws I made using these biners are by far my favorite. I especially like them for ice. Easy to clip the rope with gloves and easy to get unclipped when following because there is no notch to snag the rope. Super light and burly at the same time. Will be buying more soon.
