- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Lately, I've been belaying with this biner in the gym and it's been a pleasure to use. Using it with a BD ACT Guide and have had no issues with the set-up. Gate action is good, the screw has been flawless, and the wire keeper does what it's supposed to. Really nice.
Issues with the gate
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Pros: lightweight, nice feel in your hand, the belay keeper is easy to operate.
Unfortunately, the screwgate on this device is a real bummer. The screw does not spin smoothly and it started squeaking right out of the box. Also, the screw threads are finely pitched and require 5-7 turns to open/close the gate. This might be okay when it moves smoothly, but it's really annoying when it does not. It seems like a good device otherwise, but you can get better biners at this price point. Get one that does the basics well.
