Black Diamond Neutrino
4.8 out of 5 based on 36 user reviews.
|small, but not too small, and light. Perfect for racking, and use in alpine draws. Really light, really strong. Some people say too small, they're definitely smaller, but more than enough for anything you need.|
|Neutrinos have become my go-to carabiner. They're light, good basket, versatile and easy enough to clip. I use these for just about everything except belaying. If you watch for sales, Neutrinos can be picked up for under $5.|
|If you're used to straight or bent gates, the wire has a little stiffer action and might take getting used to.|
|-the color coding speeds up the time selecting a cam on your rack|
|they are light...but not as light as many of the similarly priced carabiners. you're paying for the colors.|
|Small compact and light weight, but they are not too small.|
For trad these make up the majority of the biners on my rack.
The gate action is nice. IT feel snappy and secure but not so stiff to make clipping difficult.
|I dont have enough of them yet?????|
-its much more pricey but the Wild Country Heliums are nice. Snag free wire gates are sweet.
|Solid Carabiner. I have 6 of them, 1 in each color to help me organize my trad rack. No complaints, its nothing special but it works.|
|Check out the Nano 23 from CAMP USA. Its about the same price but its at least half the weight!|
|Lightweight, Durable, and Great color system to use with your rack.|
These carabiners should almost be designated for using with cams.
|A little small to use for alpine draws. Not recommended for anything other than alpine draws and clipping your cams|

|How do you make a carabiner light? Make it smaller. Not an ingenious concept but they are plenty big enough to clip bolts. At 36 gram this carabiner is one of the lightest on the market.|
|A bit too small to be a rope-end biner. Blunt nose is a bit awkward, and the gate a little too stiff.|
|Trango Superfly, DMM Eclipse. Lighter and bigger.|

|Wider (better) rope basket than most small biners.|
|Less than ideal for alpine draws, small size less manageable.|
|Light, large enough to easily clip even with gloves on, CHEAP, color selection, go to for racking|
|BD Oz's, Hoodwires, Madrock wire gates, Any other 3/5 size wiregate|
|light, and clips alright-|
|does not feel like a solid product and doesn't feel comfortable|
|attaching your chalkbag to your harness?|
|Light yet big enough to handle anything a trad climber can throw at it! Perfect for racking gear or on draws!|
|good for quick-clipping things to your pack.|
|I would not recommend this for actual climbing. the clip is too weak for my liking.|
|This little biner was heavy for its size way back when it first came out (for instance, Trango had a full size biner at the Time that was at least 4 grams lighter, maybe 6). In this day and age, its REALLY heavy when compared to the Trango Superfly (28g), Wild Country Astro (29g), DMM Phantom (26g), CAMP Nano (23g) etc... Yes, the DMM Phantom which is about the same size as the Neutrino is 10g lighter! Why anyone would buy one of these dinosaurs (the Neutrino) is beyond me, unless they're specifically in the market for a small but heavy biner. Many full size biners are lighter and cheaper (or the same price). Get yourself a bunch of Mad Rock Ultralights (32g)for $5.95 each.|
