This is an awesome biner! The single wire gate isn't like a regular non-wire biner, but it's not like a wire, either. It's uber-light, as light as any wire gate biner I've every used, and it doesn't snag while cleaning. Although the Black Diamond Hoodwire is designed not to snag, it weighs more than the Ange, and it's a wire gate biner. I highly recommend this for anything from quickdraws for sport, trad, or ice, to a biner for racking your cams, to a biner to hold your shoes or slings while you climb.
