Great Big Biner 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: rockofglove, 2009-09-15

As a large offset D carabiner, this this is awesome. Nice shape, fits a grigri, has a lot of friction with an atc, slightly stronger than average Kn compared to other large aluminum biners. I like Petzl's "red dead" line on the screwgate. Massive gate opening, just as big as the OP Jake, without having to open slightly to the side. If you want a big locker with lots of area to work with inside, this is the one.

It is a pretty average carabiner. I ten to lean towards the Black Diamond Quicksilver carabiners because of the colorful look and somewhat smaller size. If you need a carabiner as soon as possible, go for it. Otherwise, look around a bit and see if you can find anything else that catches your eye. Definitely not a bad carabiner though. It does what it's supposed to.

Absolutely love this locker 5 out of 5 stars

I found this type of carabiner better than other ones, having a smooth screw is one of its advantages.

a monsterous gate opening! plus a safety red line that shows when the gate isn't locked. A great safety feature!
