2.8 out of 5 based on 4 user reviews.
|EDIT: Below is what I said before. But AFTER climbing for 2 months with them (they're on sport draws) 3-4 days a week my conclusions are a lot different. THE GATE ACTION SUCKS. They've gotten gunked up way easier than my BDs, and the spring is not really smooth or consistent. It also feels like there's some lateral sway to the gate, such that the gate doesn't allign with the nose right.|
What I originally said:
Lighter, stronger, and cheaper than the BD Hotwire. Unless something else is on sale by more, this is the wiregate to get.
|Not super light, no fancy nose.|
EDIT: Bad gate action
|Overall, I would not reccomend these biners. I always reach for my BD Freewire draws first.|
For a similar (but better) biner, get the BD Hotwire. Or go for something light like the Trango Superfly.
|Gate action is nice and snappy--this biner wants to be clipped. Lightweight, good price. I use them on sport draws.|
|nose snags sometimes due to the shape of the gate|

|Workhorse wiregate .... it's fairly cheap, and does the job|
|Doesn't have a snag-free nose, but you get what you pay for|
