Anyone ever used one of these things? I was messing around with a bunch of draws at the store the other day and I was surprised how smooth the clipping was on these. And they were cheap. Whats the catch, why isn't it more popular... anyone have history with these? Do they start sucking after a few years?

Keylock sounds nice, otherwise they look pretty generic as far as QD's go. What' so special about them to you?

They just felt really nice. I have a few Petzl Spirits and a few Black Dimond Wirecheapos and I thought this felt just as good as the Petzl Spirits. My girlfriend agreed too. Maybe I'm putting too much into little things though... ha

Also, I'm also trying to recoup costs cause my car got smashed and a lot of stuff was stolen when I was climbing in Squamish so I'm trying to recoup costs. i.e. "downgrade" draws, but I still want to keep climbing,.

they work as well as the spirits for all practical purposes ... i usually tell new climbers to buy the eldrids, they are durable, easy clipping and almost 1/2 the price of the pretzels ... you dont climb any better with $$$$$ biners v this one

Cool... so, what purposes do they "not" work then?

oh another reason i like them is they don't have that little hook that sometimes catches onto your harness. (probably more of a trad concern as I've dropped a nut ones when a nut got caught on the hook part?)

For the cost I can wait for a sale and get WC Nitro draws.

I have these draws and love them. Cheap, Durable, easy clipping, key-notch, Fairly thick dog bones. I've even purchased them and used just the biners for extendible draws.

Point is, they are great.

well if you need to go light, then something lighter might be in order

but for sports climbing youll be absolutely fine

if the draws are holding someone back from climbing hard, theres some other problem i suspect ;)
