    Great cheap biner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    They're cheap, especially when on sale. They're light. They're easy to clip. They come in tons of different colors. They don't snag on bolts or slings easily. They're sweet. Nuff said.

    Good Performance

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got these biners to use as the "bolt end" of alpine draws. They are super light weight and strong, and the gate action is really springy and quick, without begin difficult to push. Very happy with them

    i like the bent gate

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

    i like the bent gate, the rope snugs into the gate nicely and only requires a little more pressure to open the gate and slip the rope into the basket, it feels automatically guided, a natural entry.

    compared to some straight gated carabiners i have, this one feels polished in the construction of the frame, smoother and more comfortable to handle, i replaced a couple on the rope end of a set of draws i bought, the Omega Pacific Dash Dirtbag Draw Rack Pack - 6 Pack.

    i give it a 4 star rating instead of a five because of the hook nose, which kinda snags the rope, not much of a problem when putting the rope in, but if for some reason if i need to take it out, the rounded nose design is much a smoother action, but i knew what i was getting when i ordered these so i feel kinda guilty deducting points for that.

    the hook on this design is much smoother then my other carabiners which are also hooked but much more blocky with pointier edges.

    Great for Alpine Draws

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a bunch of these for my alpine draws and my Phase draws.

    Gate Size:
    I've had others complain about clipping the Phase biner but that is because they use huge full size carabiners rather than mid sized ones like this. I personally like the gate size and think it's easy to clip.

    Biner Size:
    I can't do the super small carabiners (CAMP USA Nano 22's or the Metolius F.S. Mini's) on my cams. I like a mid sized carabiner like the Trango Phase's or the Neutrino's.

    Color Coding:
    On the colored ones, I match these up with my sets of Master Cams and love the color coding.

    Weight:
    At 1.05oz these are on par with the weight of most other carabiners. Not super heavy but also not the lightest carabiners ever (think of the CAMP USA Nano 22's).

    Pairing:
    For the colored version, I pair these up with my Master Cams since the 8 color match up. I prefer these for my Master Cams and Neutrinos for my C4's. This way I can easier spot a biner and know what type of cam it goes with as well as what size cam I'm looking at or grabbing.

    Shoot me an email if you have any questions about these carabiners or any other gear!

    Biner Size Comparrison

    For the Light and Fast Crowd

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These biners are a great option when weight matters. I might not call it a work horse but it's a great option for the alpine.



    Gate Size:

    It's a tad on the small size but it clips nice and I've had no real problems. Maybe once of twice where I was clipping and a few colorful words came out but that's normal. One of my climbing partners hates the gate size on these, but he's use to clipping some Wild Country biners that are overly huge. Some of my other climbing partners enjoy them the way I do.



    Gate Type:

    You've got the Blue (Bent Wire) and the Silver (Straight Wire) and those are the options. But lets be real. Take a look at the picture of both gates and they're essentially the same gate. Micro differences that if you're clipping them, you most likely wont notice.



    Biner Size:

    This is where the magic happens... or the weight savings. The overall biner size is a tad smaller than most others but this results in reduced weight which makes these puppies perfect. Especially when you load up on gear, it's nice to shed some 'training weight.'



    Color:

    You've got the Blue (Bent Wire) and the Silver (Straight Wire) and those are the options. I use the Blue for the rope end (to see the wear) and the Silver for clipping bolts. I do this so I don't create any spots on my biners from a bolt that can cause additional abrasion on my rope.



    Weight:

    Light is right. Incredibly light. I'll be ordering more of these when I decide to grow my trad rack with a few 60 cm slings.

    Initial Impressions

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

    I like this carabiner so far. I haven't really got to use it too much yet, but it seems to handle well, have a nice gate action, and is pretty light. Can't wait to use it more. Hopefully these are durable.

    Are these Trango Phase biners large enough...

    Are these Trango Phase biners large enough to clip with gloves?

    Trango's website shows the latest version has a 23mm gate. not sure about this exact carabiner. They are kinda small, i have these on alpine draws. I like dmm alphas and camp photons for their fat gates and light weight for winter use.

    Just curious - I just purchased a set of...

    Just curious - I just purchased a set of these and was wondering the claimed rating on them for failure. Does anyone know that amount of weight?
