HotForge Quickdraw

The HotForge racks up without weighing you down, thanks to its hot-forged carabiner construction which eliminates excess material. Dual keylocks mitigate snagging, and the contrasting-colored, bent gate on the lower biner offers both a visual target and a flutter-free clip. The wider, polyester dogbone is comfortable and stable in your hand, and speaking of stability—a Straitjacket insert maintains the carabiner orientation to make clipping easy.

Additional Options for Top Rope Anchor

I just wanted more options than my quad setup as a top rope anchor. The HotForge Quickdraw was on sale and it was just hard to beat the value of Black Diamond equipment.

Beefy Quickdraw

The Hotforge quickdraw is a well designed quickdraw with a beefy 18mm nylon dogbone sling that’s easy to grab. Both carabiners are rated and snag free keylock carabiners. I’d recommend this quickdraw if you are not worried about weight.

Black Diamond Hot Forge QuickDraw

A great product- top quality material from the dog bone to the metal. Feels great in the hand and barely any blemishing after a handful of lead climbs!

Exactly what you need and expect

When you are buying quickdraws from a reputable company, you should get what you expect and you get that from BD. This is a device that you literally trust with your life and it delivers. Well made, light weight but strong, and easy to use when on the wall. The length is good for when you need a bit of extra length, but a bit short for some anchors, and you'll need to use an extension for those. I tend to only carry a few of these with me on a climb, with the majority of my rack being shorter and lighter 'draws.

Awesome kit

Great choice for a sport climbing quickdraw. Easy opening bent gate that doesn’t catch the rope or your fingers while you clip. Robust and trustworthy.
