Good for clipping....Anything!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These guys are great! They are lightweight, Small and they are so easy to clip! There is no hook on the nose to get the rope stuck on or keys! I have a bunch of these suckers for climbing and one for my key ring. Also did I mention that there is no chance for the rope to sleep over the biner? The way the gate sinks into the nose of the biner makes it so that it is virtually impossible to open and take something off without opening the gate past the notch it sits in on the noce. So no worries about that when you are projecting that super hard route! seriously you can use these guys for anything!

Awesome Awesome Awesome!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These guys are awesome! They are super easy to use and do not get caught on anything. It can take some time to get used to clipping because they are a little smaller than whats on my rack! Works great for anchor kits or just to have! Looking to get a bunch of draws with these guys.

Would recommend.

Great for nuts

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

So this is an expensive nut racker. but it's also great for this purpose. I own three of these. I am not quite ready to change my rack out. But they are splendid for many purposes. The tiny single gate is easy to open, even with gloves and the biner seems as secure as any other.

I bought two for racking nuts based on a friend's suggestion. He said they're great for holding nuts and removing one nut is super easy. Same applies to extender slings.
I have a third that sits on my leg loop of my harness. It's there for emergencies ("oh wow, how come this Yates Screamer that i just clipped to an ice screw doesn't have a rope side carabiner on it?") and for holding a prussic/kleimheist on rappel.

Go with the Black Diamond Oz

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

Got this biner in the mail today and I have to say I am disappointed. I ordered it just to check it out and see how it compared to the Oz, thinking maybe it will be lighter, because it's smaller and easier to use with only a wire to worry about. The oz is the same weight and slightly bigger making it more versatile fitting over things (rings, larger bolts/anchors) and accommodating to the rope. I would like to exchange them for the Oz but it will cost too much to send them back and exchange them. Also, in addition, the Oz is cheaper!

Petzl Ange S, a good, light carabiner

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These Petzl Carabiners are really sick! I was put off by the single wire gate design, but they are very safe and a bomber carabiner! My buddy is the owner, but we have used them on multiple big walls and routes. They are great as a loose biner for aid climbing, used on runners, and as a quickdraw. The nose is narrow, which makes cleaning while weighting a hanger a much easier task! The Ange S Ultra-Lite Wire design cut 6 grams off the Ange L Lite Wire, making it one pure ounce. This design of the Angle S has lost up to 2kN in strength and 3mm of gate opening compared to the Angle L. Here are some more detailed specs taken from Petzl's website.

Perfect accessory biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this biner. I use it all the time for everything from clipping bottles/harnesses to my pack to clipping in to anchors while setting up rappels. It's lightweight, compact, and doesn't snag. What more do you need?

Alpine light

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When you are hiking in for 3 hours, climbing for 9 and hiking out for 5 lightness counts. These babes are great. Easy to use once you practice, they are perfect for alpine assaults

keychain anyone?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I know these are meant for much more than just a keychain, but it's a pretty good size. I think it would be a tad small for draws for sport climbing, I use Spirits for that, but this thing is the only biner of its size without a lock that gets snagged on whatever you clip your keys to. The spring in it has surprised me, Petzl really got it right with this one. Over a year of multiple clips daily, lots of dropping, lots of lint and dirt, and it's still going strong. I'd trust climbing with it, if you can handle how small it is. Otherwise, it's a pretty accessory.

Ideal for trad or for the bolt end

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have found that the more narrow opening of the Ange S is best for clipping bolts or as a super-light weight biner on select pieces of trad gear. I would refrain from using this for an entire draw set up on both the bolt and the rope end of a dogbone. Using a little larger carabiner for the clipping end ensure that you don't miss when you're making a tough clip.
That all being said, I have small female hands and love how the Ange S fits well in them. The trigger is ridiculously smooth and quick and with the blunted nose, it will never snag.

Ange biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ange S, I really like these biners, mainly using them for sport/gym climbing. Good clipping, light weight, petzl quality. Use them as quick draws too

best for the bolt end

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these exclusively for the gear end of my alpine draws. I like the Ange L for clipping the rope. Its not that you can't clip the rope in the Ange S, Its that i have big hands and don't feel like screwing around climbing at my limit. they handle well and are a breeze snake onto and off hangers and wires even on hard overhanging trad or sport. highly recommended
