One other difference between wire gate and solid gate biners is that solid gate biners can develop a sharp edge on the gate pin slot (not keylock as orig. posted) which then can slice open your finger when you clip. Like what just happened to me. Right on the side of the second knuckle of my fourth finger, hurt allot and is likely infected from the filthy draws at my gym Unimpressed

I think I like wire draws for sport climbing more now. My finger hurts damnit.
