    My primary use of this item is, I use it on a 4 foot runner for personal back up while rigging a Challenge course. Its very light and with a binder/runner its make a great back up for rigging.

    Wire gates are the best for slings and draws in my book. But they can be finicky to mess with when the nose catches. In steps the Hoodwire, basically BD's Hotwire with proven strength, handling and durability modified with another wire to keep from catching the nose. Much better price than the Wild Country Helium (good biner) and larger than the Petzl Ange which is too small to work with.




    I have been using the Hoodwire for a few months now on my alpine draws and every time I go to use one I can feel and appreciate the difference, especially on a crowded gear loop. Whatever you are looking to use these for they will be an upgrade over a standard 'biner with the most solid clipping action I have yet to experience.
