I don't like narrow dogbones.

Not sure about the Photon biners. They might be nice but I prefer Petzl biners and dogbones for my draws.

is there a point to the BD dog bone when you can just buy a photon draw in the first place?

It will be a functional draw. But it would not be my choice.

I would prefer:

Solid-gate keylock 'biner for the bolt-side
Not-skinny dogbones, such as Petzl, and preferably in longer length than 12cm.

+1 to the above, though I think the 12cm draw is fine. I prefer to have a couple longer ones as well.

Petzl spirit on the bolt side is hard to beat.

I'm fine with it as long as JT512 approves of it.

Have them. Happy with them.

I'd put a solid key-lock biner on the bolt end and the wire biner on the rope end.
