Nice and light. stays hooked on gear the way it should. The sling is a little on the long side and can be a pain to fiddle with at times.
I bought this to be part of my aid climbing kit. I attach it to my belay loop and hook it to the biner connected to the ladder being use at this particular time. It save your arm strength trying to hold your body close to the wall as you climb above your waist line above the biner. One thing I want to emphasize is Black Diamond site mentioned:" support's body weight only". Do not fall on it or jump on it. You will bend it or worse. These do not have a impact strength like any other rock climbing protection gear. Overall, great.

these are a nice fi fi. they are lighter than other hooks out there and its just plain convenient that they come pre slung with sewn 9/16 webbing, saves a lot of trouble with messy water knots and trying to guess the right length. many believe that these are slung too long but if you do a little research i think youll find that most people want thier fifis shorter than what is truly proper. plus, would BD get it wrong? i for one an fine with admitting that they probably know better than i do on some if not all things. nice little fifi, im in.
Good hook, but metal is soft and bends/gouging happens easily. The stitching gets in the way when you girth-hitch it to where you want to. Besides these downfalls, it's still a good & trustworthy piece of gear.
