HotForge Hybrid Quickdraw

The HotForge Hybrid takes Black Diamond's new hot-forged carabiner and combines it with a HotWire to further reduce the weight of your rack. Hot-forged construction maximizes strength while shaving off ounces, while the wire gate both reduces weight and eliminates gate flutter. The polyester dogbone is wide and comfortable to work with, and features a Straitjacket insert to ensure the HotWire stays properly aligned for a smooth clip.

Quality Quickdraws

There's no doubt that these draws are well-designed and made of quality materials. The gates are very tight compared to my old draws so this has taken some getting used to but I'd prefer a tighter gate over a loose one most days of the week. For the price, it's challenging to find a comparable medium-weight draw made with such quality materials. And I love the ultra pink finish - easy to see them at the crag and they doubly serve as dudebro repellent.

My favorite quickdraws!

I love these so much. Smooth clipping and relatively lightweight. I also always get compliments about how bright and easy they are to see on the rock.

Wear these on your hip and when you need it quickly draw it and BAM!

Excellent draws

It is great to have some of these paired with the 12cm version. The extra length is awesome when climbing steep or wandery bolt climbs. The extra length in the dog bone can reduce rope drag more than you would imagine.

Great quality and design

I already had the 12cm set and these just round out my collection of gear. Very useful in those tricky spots where you need just a bit more flexibility. Looking forward to using these for years.

Love it!

Smooth and comfortable to work with. the color east to recognize on the rock and the hybrid color (blue to black) is very nice.
