Here's what others have to say...

What side do you clip to the rock in a small/large combination? Is it climber preference? Is one size more resistant during a dynamic fall? Would using these on a trad setup compromise anything? I really like the gate system and weight but can't make up my mind as to what size to commit to. I'm thinking small for rope side and large for rock bolt.

Hi Alex,

In this case, Grey goes to Gear (bolts, trad gear, etc) and Red (or orange) goes to Rope.

No issues at all using them for trad, they're great draws!




These have become my go to draw.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I bought a set of 5 of the large 17cm draws and they have quickly become my go to draw for all types of climbing. I used to use the Metolious Helium draws, and I still like those alot for sport climbing but the larger 17cm draws are roughly the same weight and strength and are more versatile. I love 'em.

Here are the Anges in action - clipping the chains on the FA of a New Donner classic

These have become my go to draw.

Awesome picture Patrick!!!

Best. Draws. Ever.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I picked up a bunch of these recently to replace some old draws on my rack and couldn't be happier. At just 66 grams, you don't even notice a rack of ten of them on your hips. Further, the MonoFil keylock wire gate system is the simplest and smoothest gate system I have ever used and I have been through more than I can count. They aren't joking around when they say you won't be fiddling with a gate while clipping. The one drawback is the price, but you get what you pay for and Petzl made it worth your while with this one. My suggestion, buy one or two and see if they are worth the money to you, as some people find the gate system to be odd, and my guess is your won't be disappointed!


Love these

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Honestly love these quickdraws so much! My friends made fun of me at first for spending so much money on them and they having spent 8 dollars on omega pacific. But after them using them they are now wishing they would have spent some more money for higher quality and lighter draws as we are improving our climbing grades.

I was hesitant on how small the gate is since I got the small biners but they work just fine even when clipping a fatter rope. Seriously would recommend these to any one!!


Best biners ever

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Takes a little while to get used to them but they really work great. Been playing with them on the rope side of my draws for a few hundred pitches. There are so many ways to clip these that you can't with other biners. Check petzls video. Finally biting the bullet and getting a full rack of them together for both sides of my draws. Can't wait to rack up with a full set. I like the s for the gear side and either for the rope side. Although the l biners are easier the clip the rope into. I like bd hood wires too. But for sport climbing I'll take the ange any day

When is the large and large draw going to...

When is the large and large draw going to be back in stock?


It looks like maybe Petzl might be behind in production and can't keep up with demand. It looks like we might have a running order where we get what is available as it is made available. Luck for us they are located only just down the road so they should be able to get them to us pretty quickly.



  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I had the chance to try a set of these, and I wasn't impressed.

The Good:


--They look sexy

--Nose is smooth, so it won't hang up.

The Bad:

--Tiny gate; OK for the bolt end, but quite annoying on the rope end.

--Clipping action feels weird, but probably only because the gate is essentially a single wire.


These just didn't feel right for me. The gate was teeny which made getting the rope quite finicky. If you want a super light draw, I would look at Hoodwires or Oz draws instead.


Great overall draw!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I love this draw. It is strong, light, and has a cool appearance. The only thing that I don't like about this draw is the price. One of my favorite features of this draw is the no catch nose. It allows you to connect into the bolt/protection very easily, same with the rope connection. This is for sure my favorite draw in my rack. Opening the gate may be different then others, but overall, I love this rack!


Maybe you get used to the gates?

    petzl, like many companies, was trying to create a smoother cleaning wire gate biner. their design acomplishes that, but the single wire gate doesn't feel good when clipping. not to mention the gate opening is small. i still prefer double wire gates for the rope and a solid gate for the wall. if i don't send, it won't be because my draws were too heavy.


    Love them

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I love the gate, it doesnt snag on the rope when you unclip or play with the rope. They are light and nice to handle, the only downside some people comment when they use my draws is sometimes they snap their figure when they clip the rope in because the gate is not as large as others.


    Great Quick Draw, but...

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    they are just too damned expensive!

    That is my only complaint about these draws.


    Love em

      I really like these quick draws. I think they clip really nice. Granted, the orange ones are a little small, but they are super light. I love the fact that they have a no catch nose, so clearing the rope and the bolt is super easy. I think they clip with a reassuring sound, and that they look very cool. The blue caribiners are larger and easier to handle, but heavier. If you are having trouble clipping them, there is a video on youtube or petzl's website on how to clip them. The way they show you works perfectly. Takes a while to get used to, but I love them now. Great quickdraw


      finicky but fine

        I bought these for their lightness and they are awesome. I find them OK to clip but require good technique. A lot of my friends do not like the small ones and I kinda agree. Go with the larger ones and you won't look back.

        I do find that the webbing sling has developed a twist in it that I do not like and others have also had this issue.


        Good Quick Draws

        This is a great draw, I like the low profile, and that they are not too bulky. I have used the biners on there own, so it only seemed natural to get the matching draws too. Older climbers made a lot of fun at first, till I let them try them on a few climbs, now they are looking to buy them.

        Good Quick Draws

        smaller, bigger gate opening than SPIRIT

        • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

        a small biner, but it has has a bigger gate opening than the Spirit, narrower nose, similar volume underneath the nose, 21 gramms lighter than the Spirit. I replaced all my Spirits on my rack with Ange S and climbed 1000ft routes in the Dolomites with 2 buddies of mine, using two single ropes, a 9.4 and a 9.8. YES!!! 2 single ropes in that small biner.

        Easier to clip and unclip than the Petzl Spirit

        smaller, bigger gate opening than SPIRIT


          I am old school. Built my first trad rack in 1976 - that's a way to say I have had a lot of binners, gear, rack. These are what they are advertised as - advanced forging mono wire gate ultra light carabiners. A big/small combo draw weighs in at about the same as a single old school Chouinard D on my rack. That is a take notice savings of weight. As others have said in various ways - there is no free lunch - you loose the old school durability - the small is, well, rather small and takes getting used to. For what they are, what they are built to do - I beleive the represent the state of the art and are REALLY cool enginerring. There is a place on anyones rack for a half dozen of the small / large combo's IMHO.


          Wish I had gone with the L... or Spirits

          • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

          The design of these biners is super trick. They are as light as it gets and have 90% of the benefit of a keylock - there is a little nubbin at the end of the mono-wire gate that can catch a rope or finger - nothing compared to a real notch but not completely smooth like a keylock gate. At any rate, the design is great and they are the lightest draws I have ever seen, but the fact is the S is simply too small for smooth clips. If you are interested in ultralight quickdraws, I highly urge you to eat a few more grams and go with the L on the clipping side. Or get WC Heliums, which are even bigger and almost as light.

          On a related note, however, I have become dubious of the value of ultralight sport draws. If you do lots of hard onsight attempts, then they are nice. For projects, though, they are pretty pointless. And once you get used to carrying a trad rack, the difference between 12 "normal" draws and 12 UL draws is pretty negligible.

          The Petzl Spirit is bigger, tougher, and has a certain intangible perfection to the clip that no other draw, including the Ange L, can match for me. Unless you are really into hard sport onsight attempts, I suggest the Spirit as the ultimate quickdraw.
