Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

honestly, I find these to be too small for the job as a racking biner. the anodization on the green is poor it looks a like the grey in flat light. The shape is awkward. its my least favorite racking biner. its is miles better than the FS mini. I prefer the Helium rack pack as a racking biner, That however is really expensive. I also really like Camp Photon rack packs. that being said it is a cheaper option that gets the job done. there are better options including the the new OZ rack-pack.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am A HUGE DMM fanboy, and will normally pay just about anything for their stuff. However, these are perhaps a little too pricy. Yes they clip nicely, yes the Clean wire is nice, yes the Asymmetric kinked spine is delicious. However, to put my whole rack on these even at wholesale is murder. Frankly the benefits of Clean Wire for a gear racking biner is negligible. even when slamming cams in on roofs and wandering pictches my second has few issues with notched biners. Mostly because you can just take the cam out first then unclip the pro. I as a leader dont feel its that hard to get a krab of my harness. Applications that it would be useful for is trad draws as thin Dynema can be a pain when doubled. I would if I could buy like 60 of these in colors...but I wouldn't feel good about it.

I bought two packs of these biners after fumbling with my rack and being frustrated. I am very impressed with the handling, shape and build. These are 29grams each and the size of a Wild Country helium or nitro, that is to say the perfect size for desperate clips where you just try and slap the rope in the biner. the size of the biners is a plus in my book and the aditional colors in the pack (Black Orange) help me sort out the mess of, Aliens, BD, Wild Country, Wired Bliss, Metolius...ect
on to the perceived negatives. Camp has had a recall on the gate tension issue, its fixed solid tension and better QC on the drilled holes for the wire gate. it looks like they can open because the nose is not shielded. well, its not but nether is the nose on every solid gate biner ever. the gate tension is roughly the same in these wire gates as my Wild Country, BD and DMM biners. It is also close to the tension of my Spirit draws. in my opinion its a non issue the drag of the rope extends the sling keeping it away from the rock and in a fall, your body falling backwards keeps the biner off the face. unless you bury your cam so deep that the biner is resting on the edge of the crack,you will have no problems . they also have a perfectly adequate open gate strength.

final thoughts, for the money and weight you cant go wrong. much better handling than the neutrino for my big hands. if you want a step up in build get the Wild Country Helium Color packs, the Specter 2, or Alpha trad rack packs. which are only 5 or 6 biners in a pack for the same price or more
