Title: carabiners
Post by: strandman on November 08, 2012, 11:20:59 AM
I'm going to get rid of some of the oldies..... what's next ??

I really prefer keylocks and am not real fond of wire gates. Petzl Spirits are on the rack now...Oxygens ? Positrons ?  a bunk of Spirits sure gets pricey

I use a bunch of different keylock biners for the bolt/gear end.  The all work well.  I have paid as little as $6/ea, on sale.
I try to stick to Spirit as the rope side biner as much as possible because I feel, at $10/ea, it is the best there is for me and my preferences.
