I'm a fan
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Being mostly a canyoneer I use these for setting clove hitch blocks. There's a few reasons why I like them over the standard pear shaped biners. I love the offset gate which makes for a huge opening, and the spine shape keeps hitch from sliding up over the top. The big working ends are very useful when having to perform rescues and setting up guided rappels. For it's size they are pretty light, an all around bomber biner. Backcountry usually has them for less than other online gear stores.
Great belay carabiner with one exception
This my favorite biner to use with my ATC, but unfortunately the model I have, the regular non key screwgate, is too thick to fit through my GriGri so when I do most of my gym/lead climbing I can't use it.
love this biner
i love using this thing. it's smooth, hassle free, has a great shape, and the offset gate is useful at times.
Fantastic Belay Biner
In my opinion the Jake is the best belay biner its roomy like an suv and smooth like a sedan. Also the rounded belay surface and device shape makes rappelling of an munter(italian) hitch in a pinch a little less painful.
