Gate a bit too stiff

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

The spring tension on the gate just seems unnecessarily high as it is on the nano. This is it's only fault. Still really easy to operate one handed due to the nice design. The colors are vibrant and the finish is primo. Way better than BD biners. Docking one star because I still paid double the price for a Helium instead. Those are just a joy to handle and this one is just a tiny bit of a pain because of the gate spring.

Lightest and cheapest

I've put it through the wringer

This carabiner is literally the lightest and cheapest option. I'm racking all my cams on them at this point and building alpine draws with them as well. The size is big enough to operate with a glove on as well which is sick. The top of the carabiner is also so much narrower than my others that when my cams are on photons I can rack more on a gear loop. Theyre dope.
