    Great Belay device carabiner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love this carabiner for attaching a GriGri to my belay loop. Sure. I have a dozen others that are functional for that purpose, but the design of this is particularly suitable for just that. I think I recall that may be even what it was made for on the Petzl site. Anyway, I like it so much that sometimes I open it, close it, open it close it several times, ya know, for the sheer joy of it. Then I I get back to belaying.
    Anyway, its pretty great.

    Fits Pirana... kinda

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

    It works as well as any carabiner I have used in my petzl pirana, not very well, but functional. Other than that works like a biner oughta. Shape is fine, light enough, gate and screw lock work seamlessly. Not blown away but it meets my expectations.

    Least favorite carabiner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This carabiner often cross loads and inverts while being used. It is also very fiddly. The ball is an unnecessary safety feature that only makes the carabiner more frustrating to use.
