Astronomically light and strong.
The ultralight Wild Country Astro Quickdraw won't hold you down when you're making your redpoint attempts. Its carabiners feature I-beam backs that offer an uncompromising balance of strength and reduced weight, and their Tech Wire gates offer smooth clipping and cleaning thanks to the no-hook, hooded noses. The skinny-but-durable Dyneema dogbone has a Vice gripper to keep one of the carabiners stable for even easier clipping and cleaning.

Here is my shiny new Astro next to my old Wild Wires.
The biners on the Astros weigh about 29g

These are some nice lightweight quickdraws! They're just a bit smaller than the Wild Wires, but still relatively easy to clip.
I'm sure these will be a great addition to our rack
I've been able to get a good amount of climbing since I've purchased these, and they're one of my favorites now for sure!
For sport climbing, they do OK. They're a little smaller, so it can be slightly harder to clip, especially when you're feeling the pump!
They are super light though, so when we go do multi-pitch routes, we always are sure to have these racked up.
