    Great budget draw

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Really good dependable draw. I prefer the longer length in 80% of sport climbing situations. Nice and light due to wire gates on both ends. The built in rubber collar keeps the rope side biner perfectly in place. The only con is the style of nose can get hung up on the hanger whike cleaning real steep routes. Otherwise, great bang for your buck.

    Great for Sport Climbing

      I got 12 of these quick draws when I was first getting into climbing, and I have been using these quick draws for almost two years now, and they are still in perfect condition. I was climbing multiple times a week using these last summer, and they were perfect for all the climbs I was doing. They are light weight, which makes this getting to the bottom of sport routes easier.

      get the job done

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are cheap and get it done right up til you get tired of the rope end biner flopping around too much due to the kinda janky retaining rubber piece inside the dogbone. After moderate use/wear you can find yourself getting some finicky clips

      Great Quickdraws

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have used these for the past few months and I like them a lot. They are pretty light weight and very easy to use. If you are looking for a nice package setup for getting into climbing I would check these out for sure.

      Grow into them - Discover they're heavy

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought 12 of these HotWire draws a couple years ago when I began to take sport more seriously. For sport I found them to be fairly convenient aside from the very prominent wiregaote nose, but as I've used them more to extend placements in trad when it doesn't warrant an alpine draw I realized that the BD HotWires are really quite heavy. Oz or Hoodwire would be a better investment depending on how much weight you're trying to save.

      Great for intro quickdraws

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These draws are great for your first set since they're cheap, light, and get the job done. The biggest con of these draws is that they are terribly annoying to clean if you're doing any steep sport routes because the rope/bolt hangs snag on the nose. Much nicer to have draws with keylock biners or with wiregates with a nose shroud.

      Solid Draw

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      New to sport and got this set for a beginner. So far they have worked great. Easy to clip and my climbing partner that is far more seasoned enjoys using my draws more than his high dollar set.

      More than adequate

        For the price, cannot be beat. I've used these primarily as a novice sport climber with a couple dozen extra pounds on my frame. With that in mind, a few ounces saved on my harness will not come into play at all.

        The carabiners feel nice, dogbone sturdy and they have held up very well over the course of many sport routes. If you are looking for elite, lightweight and trendy colors, than look elsewhere, but if you are a normal person looking for the best inexpensive draws to help send that mid-evil 5.9 you've been projecting for 2 weeks, than I don't believe a better draw can be found.

        Enjoy your day and climb on

        Great price, gets the job done

          These draws are pretty hard to beat on the affordability scale. They work well, with one slight drawback. The loop in the webbing on the wall side is quite large, at least on the 18cm, causing it to be pretty bulky. This gives the draws a kind of awkward handling coming off your gear loops sometimes. Despite this one shortcoming, these draws are a great deal, and certainly get the job done.
