Review by Bassnick on Sep. 01, 2011
Great Carabiner, really big and huge opening at the gate. It has a really strong spring in the gate so it has a nice snap close.
Just like all Petzl equipment, you get what you pay for. I feel like its a little over priced, but with Petzl gear you are getting the top of the line.
Check out the HMS Compact from CAMP USA. Similar biner but a little cheaper and a lot lighter!

Great biners! They're really big and fun to use. Novice climbers seem to have a problem opening them at first and it can be entertaining to watch. Unfortunately, I clipped into it to climb with a bowline on a bight rather than tying in with figure 8 knot and scratched it to crap.. Problems with being lazy.

Autolock is smooth, easy to learn to do quickly, and a real load of your mind with less experienced belay partners. Pretty much impossible to not lock it unless you break it and it comes in some spiffy colors.
Autolock can get sticky with age. I try to keep it as clean as possible inside the mechanism to prevent this.

Great belay/rappel biner, feels very secure (ball lock). Large basket and gate opening good for master point.
heavy, I only carry one or two. Ball lock difficult to work with left hand, right hand is easy with a little practice.

Big biner
I have the triact...takes some getting used to and I personally still find a little annoying to use.

Great screw type carabiner.
The price is a little steep. This is one of the first carabiners i bought, and i knew that petzl was high quality. There are carabiners that cost less, unless you want the name of petzl.
Black diamond?

Great autolocking belay biner. Takes a day or two to learn to flip this open fast (much faster than a screwlock).

Review by mstokely on Jul. 17, 2009
Love the Triact-lock because of the security of knowing it will automatically close and lock, great for belay devices because of the pear shaped design.

Big, Easy to handle.
Well used ones are hard to open. Auto-lock starts to stick after much use.
Screw lock.

Review by nevko1 on Feb. 28, 2011
Very Usefull Biners. Great to have to if your stuck and need to Muenter hitch down. Usefully with Gloves, i prefer the screw-lock
sometimes pricey, but worth it.
DMM has a similar one, smaller though

Review by kord92 on Apr. 25, 2011
huge, key lock is really nice, and the triact locking mechanism feels really secure.
the lock is kinda tricky at first, but becomes easy enough with practice.
Kong makes a good auto locking 'biner.

Nice and big also means a little added weight.
