Alright, let's try yet another anchor critique thread. Flame on!

Is there anything wrong using clove hitches for connecting and equalizing pieces of protection to the master point? Example of such anchor below. The strands between two clove hitches are unweighted.

So it looks like you're using one long runner? In that case, I'd fiddle with it to remove the slack in the strand between the clove hitches where it is unweighted. After that, you'd have your anchor equalized over four pieces of pro with no chance of shock loading for a single piece failure (and the load as designed for). Still, only two loops of spectra going around the hotpoint biner don't give me a warm and fuzzy. Spectra is strong as all, but far too easy to cut. That's just me.
