|Great for belays & rescue. Rounded surfaces reduce friction. Lots of room in the basket for thick ropes or those rare double munters when teaching newbs on a releasable rappel. It's also on the cheap side of similar biners.|
|Nice shape, keylock, slightly small, good feel, attractive. Rounded surface for smooth rope handling.|
|Overwhelmingly annoying feature: too many turns to lock/unlock gate, literally twice as many as any other biner I own. Quickly becomes very annoying when used to tie in or for a belay. Is this a "benefit"? How many times do you hear about a biner spontaneously becoming unlocked b/c it didn't have enough turns on the gate? Gate also quickly gets sticky from overuse due to this.|
Check to see if this is still an issue over time, as according to Metolius they may make changes to address this in future versions.
Also - as said earlier, the brown wears off pretty fast.
|DMM Sentinel is my favorite, not as rounded but smooth, light and tough.|
|Durable, rope runs smooth on a munter with enough room for the knot to flip.|
|Had one of mine crossthread, had to beat the hell out of it to get the threads aligned do free my belay device. My other one has not had this problem.|

|Best carabiner I've found for pairing with the ATC-Guide for belaying off the anchor - the round profile makes it easier to haul in slack. Keylock is a nice feature.|
|Its pretty small. This can be a benefit, but just be aware its about the size of a standard non-locker.|

|Rounded everywhere, strong|
|Heavy, small gate opening, sometimes if you tighten the gate a lot its impossible to unscrew.|
|An all around awesome biner!|
