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.

Quick, easy, and reliable quickdraw. Not particularly heavy (although if you're looking to shed grams I would go for something lighter like their litewire series) and absolutely perfect for sport routes. I generally like solid-gate draws like the Petzl Spirit Express but I've taken to the wire gate on the rope side surprisingly well. Plus I like the fact that it gets rid of the chance of gate flutter. Feels good in the hand (even though I slightly prefer bent-gate draws) and as reliable as any other black diamond product. I take these with me out to red rock and have gotten quite a few remarks on how cool the bright colors are as well.

The picture shows 6 quickdraws. How many do you receive when you order a quantity of 1?

I just spoke with support, and they said it was just one.
