Super-Fly 5 out of 5 stars

The weight savings of these carabiners is totally worth paying more for if you're an experienced climber. I like that they have a very snappy gate action. The previous poster mentioned cross-loading being a problem...I have not noticed this at all. I haven't had any problems with the nose catching either.

I have a bunch of these I use with tripled sling draws. They're quite light, which is nice, but also that means that they jangle around with the rope movement, sometimes crossloading them. The notch is pretty deep, which also catches thin dyneema slings. The gate action is a little on the stiff side, but the gate is large enough for winter use. The weight savings are great. I rack my cams with 'em as well. For the price I'd say they're great for shaving weight, as long as you know the limitations of them.
