Familiarity: I've used it several times

And I'm loving it so far. So solid and sleek. I was a little skeptical if they were solid enough but they have been impressive so far. Been using these with the Salomon S/Lab MTN boots with the Dynafit Baltoro and they're a great pair.
No more rushing to the busy slopes, I'm going with my friends to the backcountry and find some solace and earn the turns.

If you want to shave the most weight these sizes (and the #4) are where it is at. I find the smaller ULs are stiffer and more prone to walking if not extended, so I'll side with the dragons or friends for those smaller ranges.

These new BD camalots are taking something that wasn't broken and making them much better. A cross of the ultralights and the originals with a little extra flair is what you get upgrading to these puppies.

The trigger keepers are a nice touch and the weight savings on the larger sizes are huge! Plus they look badass! The new tread bites into the rock real nice. The smaller sizes I find are a little stiffer than most other cams, so not so confident on them walking with certain placements without proper extensions.

My first set of nuts were Omega Pacifics, once I got my hands on these wallnuts, I knew I had to switch.

The curvature and design is bar to none. They are pretty damn heavy though, so I usually split them between large and small and only take them when they look like they are needed.

I mainly only take my GriGri out for Top Roping or if I know I'll be top belaying someone who would want to be lowered. This carabiner makes both of those easier.

I'm knocking at star off for the awkward positioning for racking, but I acknowledge that is something on the design, you can't have both ergonomic functionality and the friction spur. But it's certainly worth it. Is it worth $50? That's for you to decide.

These have quickly become my favorite piece, especially at the Gunks and Red Rocks where I find a lot of pinscars or little pockets that C4s will not even come close to fitting.

If they were going to update these I would ask that they match the colors to the C4s range/colors. It always throws my partners off when they look at them. Otherwise amazing little friends.

I just wish they made the next size down, otherwise I've been using these more than my cams or to supplement to make a full rack and keeping it light. Still have yet to take it in the alpine where I think these will really shine.

I have tried so many carabiners for my pro and alpine draws. Those pricey WC Heliums, the BD Oz. At times I have a lot of gear and those bigger carabiners take up a lot of space, it's hard to grab the right piece (or even re-rack after you picked the wrong one) when they're crowded and ontop of each other. I tried the Metolious FS biners, waaaay too small for any practical use, so I found these puppies.

The gate is big enough, they're super thin and light, they have them in every color you want (except for black?) AND they are still rated for 21 kN!

It does take some getting use to if you're using them for the rope end, but for racking these things are a dream and work perfectly for what I was looking for. I've officially went full hog and everything but my carabiners for nuts and tricams use these, all my cams, all my draws, even my gloves use these to rack up.

If you want to keep it light and small these are the way to go my friend.
