Replace your quickdraw's old biners with Camp USA's Orbit Carabiner when your climbing rope has eaten through most of the metal.

- Q & A
Snags, but not the way you might think
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The raised markings on the spine have 90 degree angled edges which catch on rope and especially on slings, pulling at the threads.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought some of these because they were on sale, but I like the BD Neutrino better. The CAMP Orbit wire is a bit bigger and has a slightly larger gate width than the neutrino, but the action pretty stiff. However, it's not a cheap carabiner, it's durable, strong, and decently light.
