I bought a bunch of these the other day and have been using them on the rope end of my draws. So far they've been proving to be GREAT biners.

They look cool, but it looks like the edges are a little to sharp and not rounded enough? "H"

Oh, goody, titanium rope shredders. I'd like to know where I can get a dozen pairs of those for my alpine rack. Benjamin Chapman

Those look like prefect racking biners. I'll take 24. Thanks. Jeremy Riesberg

I like the way the nose doesn't capture the gate, making the closed gate strength the same as the open gate strength. Robert Cort

I'm on a low budget. I ordered a bunch of biners from here: carabinerkeychains.com/blank-c...

16 for racking and 24 more, 12 of which have the nylon strap, for my quickdraws. Probably saved a couple hundred bucks!

I recommend checking them out. Havent climbed on them yet... we'll see how it goes

The smaller ones would be great for ski leashes. I had to buy the Dynafit Guide leashes because I couldn't find another suitable microbiner to use for my leashes. Linnaeus

It will probably go well. With all the weight you saved, 5.13 should be warm up.

Get a couple of those nifty camo biners to use on permadraws. Who can argue ethics of leaving draws up when you can't see them even when you're climbing a route!?

Thanks Hank Caylor!
What load are they rated for (if that's even relevant for those babies)? Bang
