What do you think about this product?



DMM Spectre 2” from DMM Climbing

The Spectre features I-Beam construction for reduced weight, a shrouded nose for added security, and generous rope radii for smooth rope running and softer catches in a fall. Versatility and a broad feature set make the Spectre an ideal starting point for a climbing rack.

Great Value Biner with 1kn more strength

I've put it through the wringer

I recently switched out some of my BD neutrino biners with these to rack nuts and have been very happy with the upgrade. They have 1Kn more strength and are still very lightweight without adding a huge price difference. Definitely worth the dollar or so more in cost to upgrade.

Best Blue Collar Biner

I've put it through the wringer

If you're in the market for a high performance value 'biner, then stop looking around. This one is fantastic. Buy this 'biner if you you want something that's… cheap; really well made; stronger than average; standard-easy-to-manipulate-size with the snappiest gate out there. It also has a shrouded nose that helps with unclipping and gives the gate more protection. Great with racking nuts, on slings, and with anchors, this is the best 'biner of its type. You can get lighter and snag-free 'biners, but you lose handling and pay twice as-much. These are a pleasure to use.

I've used it several times

A good little carabiner. I honestly just use it for little things, aside from climbing.

Great Biner

I've used it several times

Awesome, lightweight carabiner. I use these for racking nuts, among other things. They also boast an additional 1 kN of open-gate strength vs. other comparative biners.
