Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave from Does it all I don't think there's a better draw on the market to do it all from sport to trad to ice. Biners don't snag when unclipping, and are smooth clipping on bolts, while being lightweight and durable for the alpine. Unless you're really counting grams and prefer the oz, this is a great quiver of one. the 14mm doggone is perfect. durable, and grabbable on sport projects, but light and slim for other pursuits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LP__ from Great biners! I really like the way the hoodwires clip and clean. Since I have no need for the snag-free feature on the rope end, I swapped out the bottom biners and ended up with snag-free alpine draws to boot. The only adjustment I'd make is to create a version with fatter dogbones. If I'm ever worried enough about weight to seek out Dyneema, I'll go for the Oz draws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bestbuilder from No snag at the crag I use these exclusively now. No rope snag when you are cleaning (especially on the way down with a student belaying and you need to be quick or you might just run by). They wear very well!
