I have recently bought a few of these, I always double check the manufacturers weight claims of climbing gear due to previous verifiable inaccuracies I have read about in gear reviews by even the most revered climbing brands. One biner weighs in at 52.1g, the other at 51.4g on my scale as an FYI for gram counters, rounding down to 50g is inaccurate according to my scale anyone else can verify or provide other info but this is what mine says. Is 2+/- grams per biner significant? Probably not, here comes the BUT... this leads to questioning ALL of the other given specs of the biner. If the weight claims "prove" to be inaccurate how can one cross compare all of the other factors of the biners attributes (Major Axis Strength ex.) with any confidence in the posted numbers? Should it be the consumers responsibility to test the specs for accuracy?
