Put a hood on that wire.

Best quick draws ever with this one.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The black diamond hoodwire is one of the best carabiners I have every used. I bought this in a six pack which came with assorted colors. The pack of six is an awesome buy and allows you to fully customize your draws to whatever length/color you want, all while knowing that they are backed by an amazing biner at each end.
Unfortunately, the package deal isn't on the site at the moment, but my love for the carabiner still stands. The clipping action is very smooth, meaning you do not waste any energy clipping when you are pumped out of your mind. The metal hood covering the nose (for which this carabiner is named) makes this easy to unclip from and remove from the wall. This is quite unlike other biners which have a hooked nose with no cover and can be a huge hassle to remove from the bolt hanger.
