Smooth Draw

These are great quickdraws. The nitron 'biner on the top is pretty light for a full size cylinder-gate, and is super easy to handle (fits nice in the hand). It is basically just a lighter, overall smoother and better version of the BD positron (and you all know how solid those puppies are). The hotwire has about the smoothest gate on any wire gate 'biner around, making for some easy clips when you're pumped out of your mind. The dogbone, after BD upped it to 14mm, is surprisingly easy to grab, and doesn't twist. The 10mm was too skinny in the past for anything but superlight 'draws like the oz, but these seem to bridge the gap between the fat and the super skinny dogbones. Not the absolute lightest draw out there, but still really light, and they just feel good in the hand and in use. Highly recommended!

My picture shows the size difference between the 14mm hotwire dogbone against a 10mm BD runner as well as a positron 'biner for comparison.

Hey are those biners (both) full sized ? (same size like a positrons or smaller like neutrinos? ) Im choosing between them and Posiwires (http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-posiwire-quickdraw) which are 10 gram heravier and have full sized biners.
