Good alpine biner

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

They make up a fair chunk of my trad rack and I like it that way. Light, good size and feel

Great carabiner

A good carabiner if your looking to use them as alpine draws.

>Rating: 5

Great!

I used these for some alpine draws, great size!

>Rating: 4

Solid biner

Solid carabiner. I use it on my runners for trad climbing. Lightweight. Only downside is a little stiffer wire than I would like.

>Rating: 5

Great

I’ve used it to keep my gear together on my packs and I have loved it

>Rating: 5

Great for a variety of uses

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I just recently bought 4 of these carabiners. They are high quality and the wire gate is stiff enough to be safe but soft enough to be convenient. They have a 24 kilonewton major axis strength. I decided to look up the conversion of kilonewtons to pounds: these carabiners have a weight limit of over 5,000 pounds! You could support the weight of a VW bug on one of these things! That’s amazing!

Use them for my Alpine Draws

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These are larger than the Neutrinos. As biners, they do exactly what they are supposed to. The wire gate is good, and they seem pretty strong so far. I have not had any trouble with snagging or clipping.

>Rating: 4

Exactly what you think

I bought a few of these to make my own alpine draws, and they work perfect. I've got larger hands, and Hotwires, as opposed to neutrinos or smaller biners, make clipping and handling these really nice. The only downside to these are if you're using them for trad, wires can apparently get snagged on the nose, though that hasn't happened to me yet.

Great for cams

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These carabiners are perfect for the C4 camalots. The color compliments the cams perfectly, they are a great size, not too heavy and they are nice and easy to clip. I personally like the camp usa photon more but these are still a great carabiner.
