Solid wire

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is now my favorite wire carabiner. It feels much more solid than any other wire gate I’ve used. I like the large opening that is not so common with other wires. I like using the petzl djinn because it has a nice wide opening, but this guy opens even a bit wider. All in all a solid light biner that I’m happy to have and look forward to using more of.
