Astronomically light and strong.
The ultralight Wild Country Astro Quickdraw won't hold you down when you're making your redpoint attempts. Its carabiners feature I-beam backs that offer an uncompromising balance of strength and reduced weight, and their Tech Wire gates offer smooth clipping and cleaning thanks to the no-hook, hooded noses. The skinny-but-durable Dyneema dogbone has a Vice gripper to keep one of the carabiners stable for even easier clipping.

- Q & A
Lightweight and user friendly
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought a couple of this quickdraw last month. They are light in weight and very user friendly. It is very easy to clip, especially for the rope! I love them!
Great Sport Quickdraws
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had a number of these quickdraws for a few years and they've been very nice for sport climbing. Clipping is smooth and easy and they fit well in the hand when reaching to the bolts. They don't show much wear even after a fair amount of use.
How is this different than the Helium 2 quickdraw?
The Astro is a lighter quickdraw than the Helium. Also the biner design is slightly different.
