    Bolt hangers can wreck havoc on lightweight wire-gate draws, especially if you're regularly whipping off a project and hang-dogging through sequences. To address the issue, DMM fitted its featherlight Alpha biners with hot-forged solid gates to make the Alpha VW Sport Quickdraw. The combination of durability, easy handling, effortless clipping, and a relatively low weight make this draw the perfect choice for sport climbers who expect their gear to work as hard as they do.

    • Alpha biners feature a grippy groove pattern and a bent backbone for easy handling and effortless clipping
    • Burly solid gate design on the bolt end stands up to the abuse inflicted by bolt hangers
    • Hot-forged bent gate on rope end makes for quick and easy clipping
    • Clean nose profile reduces snags for easier clipping and cleaning
    • I-beam construction allows for low weight and high strength
    • Variable width nylon sling keeps the biners properly aligned
    • Item #DMM3253

    Always MY draws...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Hey guys. We all have a sport rack. But you guys always want ME to bring MINE. I get it, I get it. The DMMs are hella smooth. The gate on the rope end is perfectly shaped for easy clipping. You never have to fumble with it. And the basket guides the rope right where you want it. And they just feel good to work with. I get it. You like my rack... way better than you like yours... So fine. I'll bring the DMMs again. (I hope this isn't the only reason you guys go on climbing trips with me.)

    Thank you for supporting our community with all of your helpful reviews, Laralyn!

    Neglecting the spirits now

    Best. Draw. Ever. Period.

    Very Smooth

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Most of the time I am using these I am in the gym. However, even with that said, these are the smoothest carabiners. I am still in the process of learning clipping for lead and these make it much easier. Because of how smooth they are I am able to clip easier and more effectively.

    Saw them In Wales and I had to buy more

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    When you are climbing with Welsh climbers in both Spain and in Wales and you are red-pointing and you reach up to clip.... pray that you have some of these. Hands down, the easiest, most versatile draw I have ever touched. Coming from wire-gate BD's these are a game changer. DMM is quality gear from guys who know it best over there in Wales.

    Best draw I have used

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used a lot of different draws and these are hands down the best I have ever used! The smoothest gate action I have ever seen, huge bend on the end of the gate makes it incredibly easy to clip your rope into, the grooves on the side make it easy to grip (I actually noticed the difference), thick but light bone for the size so the draw never gets twisted, and just down right look awesome!

    Down side: not the lightest on the market but still not an issue in my opinion and also pricey, well worth the price though!

    4x4 of the quickdraw world

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you're tough on gear or have huge balls this is the draw for you. I couldn't have been happier with a piece of equipment

    Great first set!

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

    In the words of a friend whom I purchased these for as a gift:

    I'm brand new to lead climbing and these quick draws have worked well for me. The gate is pretty easy to open and to get use to which is great for a nervous beginner. These are also light weight. I barely notice them when I'm climbing. One thing I do wish is that the gates had groves in them for your fingers. Even though the gates are easy to open I do notice my finger slipping a little when opening the gate.

    My Favorite Quickdraw

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love the business end carabiner, with its easy clip gate which DMM says is hard to accidentally unclip. DMM makes super high quality stuff, the gate action is solid and smooth and I expect these 'biners to last years and years without any degradation to the action. Suberb sport quickdraw.

    Decent draw

      Overall this is a good draw. VW bones eliminate a lot of twisting to keep the biners oriented properly as much as possible. The bolt biner has a solid feel and very smooth action while the rope biner has a deep bend to make clipping a breeze. Almost never have to fiddle with the biner orientation or reclip due to the draw slipping.

      Im wondering when you will be getting more...

      Im wondering when you will be getting more of these draws in! i need 12!

      Hey Rob,

      It doesn't look like we will be getting any more of these draws in anytime soon but we do have the Alpha Biner in stock in both the bent or straight gait if you were interested in building the draw yourself as well as the wiregate version of this draw.

      They seem to be in stock now.

      Hey just wondering when you will get more...

      Hey just wondering when you will get more short DMM Alpha VW Sport Quickdraw's? Cheers

      We have a bunch of 12cm draws coming in mid month. Keep checking back around then.

      When will you be getting more of these in...

      When will you be getting more of these in stock?

      Use the chat window that pops up to ask stock questions. you'll get a live human that can answer your question on the spot. Since it's Friday, you likely won't get an answer on here from BC staff until Monday.

      We have a bunch of 25cm coming in sometime in early May. We have plenty of the other two lengths right now and more coming at the same time as those 25cm.
