oval carabiner 5 out of 5 stars

I buy a lot of ovals. I find they are the best at racking gear and the fact that they are cheap is the best thing about them. I am told they can be hard to use in some situations but i have yet to have one of those moments. Will buy more of them tell they stop working for me.

No matter what you're doing, you always need some extra ovals. These are cheap, strong, durable, you name it.

My first biner, and still buying new ones. I climb mostly trad, and find these versatile and durable. Sure they weigh more than the new stuff, but they have a decent kn and can be used for a variety of anchors and rope movements. i dont mind the old design or how other newer biners are "easier" to clip - this guy is tried and true.

not sure what you can say bad about these.. the weight is just about it. I use these to rack my wired pro, I've had some problems racking wired pro on wiregates, it seems they like to try and escape. It's also nice to have 4 of these to use the biner brake to rap if you drop your belay device. oh, and theyre stupid cheap.
