Description

Another classic design which is still top of the list for any climber who requires a rugged carabiner which sits securely in the hand and has sufficient internal volume to clip virtually anything! These characteristics make the Eclipse unstoppable for traditional use - clipping into multiple protection points or clove-hitching into complex runner systems. The narrow nose profile combined with the length and angle of the top bar create the perfect shape for a first time strike through bolt hangers or awkwardly positioned pieces of protection. Eclipse carabiners have internal location grooves and an anti-snag nose profile. The quickdraw set has one straight and one bent gate carabiner on an asymmetric 19mm x 10cm nylon sling. Carabiner Ratings (plain/bent): Gate closed strength-25kN, Gate open strength-9kN, Gate opening-25mm/32mm. Quickdraw weight: 120 g.

Solid biners. The only thing that beats them are wire gates.
But I recently heard that there are Eclipse wiregates out there....

Solid draw set. I bought these specifically for ice! They are nice for work in gloves or people with large hands. Plenty or gate through, nice and wide over all. I guess they might be heavy, I dont really notice though. DMM has always been good to me. this is my first set of draws and comparing it to others I have cleaned and clipped on trad routes, I think the large size works well with my hand size, and the wide gate is openning is probably a plus for everyone.... I will see how they wear over this season of rock.

These are great draws! The sling and biner both have higher strength ratings than the Petzl Spirt. They are very well-priced as well, about $7 cheaper than the Spirit. They clip very easily and have wide gate openings. You won't even notice that they weigh a little more than most biners.

This has got to be one of the easiest to clip quickdraws on the market. The bent gate especially, has a huge gate opening. The only real negative is the weight, as they are pretty heavy. They also don't have the notchless nose like Petzl Spirites. Great value, I got mine for around $17 CDN at MEC. The Eclipses are quite strong too, especially with the gate open (compared to other biners). If you have the money, I would go with Spirits, Positrons, Wirelocks or Hotwires but the Eclipse is a great mid-range quickdraw.
