Good 'biner, could've been better
Review by: ja1484, 2007-05-25
Have a couple of these I picked up on discount after they were discontinued.
Firstly, the pros: The gate is easy to operate single handedly, and the large size means there's lots of room on this 'biner for several connections. They make good powerpoint 'biners. Slightly more security than a screwgate, but not quite the warm fuzzy feeling of a 2 or 3 stage autolocker.
Then the mediocre: The gate seems particularly vulnerable to dirt and grit - a good cleaning restores the gate to a nice smooth action, but I have to do it a bit more than I'd like.
Overall, nothing making is rise above the pack, but nothing makes it noticably worse than the competition. A good, standard, vanilla workhorse biner.
