I agree that these biners are a bit pricey compared to other lightweight biners, however, I definately find them more useable than the others. Much like the Prowire, which they replace, the Spectre is full sized, full strength and annodized to match your cams. The Spectres though, address the one big downfall of the Prowires, Spectres can be used with normal one inch webbing where as the Prowires shouldn't be. If these carabiners featured the Wild Country Heliums keylock nose and were cheaper they would have gotten a 5. Overall these carabiners are probably more suited to the experienced Trad climber looking to shed weight but not functionality, than the hardcore sport climber or new leader starting a rack.
