Seth Kotelnickiwrote a review of Black Diamond HoodWire Carabiner on January 8, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
You're leading a trad route and you go to place a nut, damn f'ing carabiner is snagging on the wire. Ugh I'm pumping out, this sucks. Great, now I'm dropping nuts and shaking like a little bitch. If I can't get his piece placed I'm going to fall and it's all because my carabiner is snagging. Well not anymore. These woodworks are super sweet, they slide on and off nuts, slings, and other pieces of gear like butter. They won't help you when you're getting scared and bitching out on lead, but they do take away one piece of frustration, haha. I have over 30 of these biners and use them for everything.
