Hey , what racking biner would You recommend for those puppies ? I was thinking about Black Diamond OvalWire Carabiner but it has notched wire gate and its heavier than any wire gate biner for egz CAMP USA Orbit Wire which is cheaper. I wanted to take two biners to go with DMM Wallnuts - bigger sizes on one and smaller sizes on the other. Also I wanted to buy a racking biner for tricams. What do You think? Is it better to buy lighter but a bit smaller biners for racking stoppers? Or maybe with keylock? - som say that notched gate prevents of losing stoppers ;)

Anyone have these cuties for sport climbing? Any recommendations, cons, pros? They are on heavier side but they seem to be solid, they have keylock gear biner and they have wider dogbones so Its not likely they will twist during the clipping. Im considering buiyng 12 of them for sport crags routes but there are also the BD Hotwires , they are 10 grams lighter than posiwires but they dont come with 18 cm long dogbones here.. I have a dilemma which to choose. Is the positron biner the same size as Nitron ?

Hey I wanted to buy colour biners as carriers on a gear sling for my Black Diamond C4 Cams and I have two questions: 1. If they really fit the colour of the C4 cams I mean if the yellow is yeallow, not greenish etc? 2. Which biner would be better for only carrying C4 cams - spectre 2 colour or this phantom since the phantoms are lighter (but smaller) - they will fit the sling which is connected with C4's handles?

Hey, I want to buy biners for my 8mm dyneema slings to make alpine extendable quickdraws. Im debating on buying Wild Country Nitros or Astros for that purpose. I saw Astro and they seem a little bit to small, but they are lightweight. I see opinions that Nitros are bigger - full sized biners so they would fit my hand better I think, but they are heavier than astros.. On the other hand its only 7gram per biner and I would have max 12 of them in my backpack. I have climbed only with full sized biners so I don't know if size difference is really an issue. Some say that its harder to clip in into smaller ones.. I dont know which to choose. Im kinda into Nitros - Thin, lightweight sling and a slightly heavier biner - Nitro (but a full sized, friendly size and still lighter than most full sized biners)? Anyone ?

Im think about this one and Metalious Freenut Key. Two questions: 1. The nose of this nut key seems to be quite sharp. Is it like very sharp so it could make a hole in the backpack material (or whatever clothing) when carried in it? Does it tend to get caught on things?
2. Is the wire-gate biner durable? Any complaints on fast breaking of it?
