These biners weigh 35g, are rated to to 24kn major axis strength, come in bent straight and wire gates, have a pretty good size and a good rope radius. These are the same as the new Mammut biners and probably a few others' as well.

These are my favorite cam-racking biners. Very lightweight, good action, full size, and low price make them winners in my book.

These are amazingly light (35g!) and very affordable ($5). I have these on the pro/bolt end of all my draws, which they are perfect for (I prefer a bent gate with a smoother action for the rope end). Swap 20 of these into a rack and you will feel the weight difference.

I have eight of these on 'draws and haven't had any gripes with them. I like the feel of the BD Hotwires better but these are lighter.

Great except for stiff gates and an unprotected nose (unlike the Hotwire.) I use em for the pro end of draws and in anchors. Not great for racking on or clipping ropes in, due to the stiff gates.
