Okay, so its an oval. Heavy, 'weak', blah, blah, blah.
I love my ovals. Love 'em. My entire rack is ovals (and ovalwires).
This carabiner rocks.
Versatile, racks tons of gear, doesnt cross-load easily, and has a friendly footprint. Although not super strong, it will handle 18kn, which is stronger than the cam its clipped to.
Heavy (eh, weight builds character!), 'weak' (if you sport climb, this isnt the carabiner for you), doesnt clip like a dream (that's what ovalwires are for!).
All in all, its a cheap, reliable carabiner that is still the workhorse of the industry.

The necessary evil! The plan old oval. For the price it is a very nice buy! As noted before, even though not as strong as other models it is still stronger than most of the gear it will be used with. Buy lots of these, you will always find a way to use them!
