    These biners are nice, but they are far from being the best. I bought one back when I was trying to decide which wiregate I wanted for my draws (I ended up choosing the helium). I now have my old orange livewire on my number 2 link cam and it matches nicely. No big complaints about the biner except that it doesn't clip as smoothy as something from DMM or wild country, I think this has something to do with BD sticking with a straight wire rather than curving it slightly.

    I actually have the new LiveWire Quickdraw with the LiveWire carabiner making up the rope end. This is one great biner. The new shape and the little grippers on the spine makes this super easy to clip. They are a little pricier than most, but worth it when it comes to safety and confidence on a climb. Ok, I really bought these because they come in Michigan State green, but they are still great and I'm buying more!




    A nice biner to clip because of the wire gate and deep basket at the bottom of the spine. The ribs along the spine makes for a nice catch to place your thumb or index finger for a good grip. Not one of the lightest carabiners but still one to have in your rack.
