A few pounds? Were you using steel 'biners?

Nope, 3 pounds is only 1360 grams....the average biner weighs over 50 grams (BD-Ovals are 62 grams)...nano's weigh in at 23 grams.

My trad rack was full of my oldest biners including several old BD-Ovals.

Swapping out 40 biners = ~3 pounds.

Maybe the investment isn't worth the cost...but since I was ready to upgrade my biners (some where 15 years old)...I took the deal as my chance to lighten up!

40 biners? Yes...think about 15ish runners/draws plus racking biners for cams and nuts.
