I have 4 and looking for more.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Title says it all, I keep all my protection on these biners to keep everything organized. Nice and light.

Racking Stoppers and Hexes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This biner is great for racking extra stoppers and hexes on those long multi-pitch routes when you want to prevent long run-outs. Lightweight and able to carry a lot of stoppers.

So nice

Perfect for racking multiple pieces of gear i.e. stoppers, tricams, hexes and random other stuff (cordallette, puffy, shoes ...). Light, smooth gate, no complaints.

Seperation

Perfect for splitting up your gear. Rope also runs smoothest through oval biners.

Not perfectly oval

Does everything you need it to, except be perfectly oval-shaped. I got a few of these because I don't like running non-loadworthy gear on my harness and needed some extra gear clips and something to hold my chalk bag. It's a little awkward for the chalk due to the shape, but it ultimately works. Other than that: super light and no issues. Love the wire gate.

Since this biner isn't perfectly oval, can...

Since this biner isn't perfectly oval, can you use it with a pulley as part of a crevasse rescue system? Would it be better to go with the regular Black Diamond oval to ensure that the load is evenly balanced? I like the wiregate a lot but in a crevasse rescue situation I'd want to maximize the efficiency of the system, and I'm not sure if this biner's "oval-ish" shape would affect that. Thanks!

It is te picture....the ovals in person are just as "ovalish" as the hardgate sstem...but...if i were in a crevasse situation i would want a pulley, not an oval biener

Responded on

I think you misunderstand my question. I am asking about the biner you use to connect to the pulley... Not using a biner in place of a pulley. And the shape is definitely slightly more of a D when you compare this one to the standard oval BD makes. Has anyone used this for crevasse rescue?

Responded on

Your pulley should attach just as well to this as the hard gate. I haven't really seen a difference in efficiency in the carabiners, just in the pulleys.

These are great for everything. I use them to rack stoppers and keep my gear organized on longer climbs.

A benchmark biner

These biner's are sweet. I have a bunch of them on stoppers, hexes, and cams. The oval wire is an affordable high quality biner that will stand the test.

Great Oval!

Simple, strong, light, quality, cheap. I have nothing bad to say about this carabiner. It has many uses from anchors to just racking up gear.

Go out and get one, or ten!

Good all-around Biner

Great product! Easy one hand use, and still lite weight for it's size. I use them on all my runners. This is a very good all-around biner.

good stuff

these are great biners i love them for racking stoppers and other bulk gear, i also love these for throwing a sling in there and making some alpine draws. they are light, cheap, sexy and the wire gates wont freeze up on you. just buy ten and have them handy!

Must have

You need them for racking, and these are most definitely the most versatile carabiners you can buy.

5 5

Has it all.

lightweight, cheap, strong, and a nice wide opening. What more do you want? rack it up!
if you want to get picky, complain about the lack of keynose- and then take out a 2nd mortgage to rack with those
