Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect balance! This is my go to non-locking carabiner for everything - ice climbing, alpine quickdraws, even my trad rack as a ton of these. It's lightweight, full size, doesn't freeze up and it's full strength. While there's lighter micro-biners, I think the size versatility makes up for the extra weight. Clipping these are no problem, even with mitts or gloves on, and I can even tie a decent hitch 'round one if I have to. It's pretty directional, so cross loading has never been an issue for me.,,,,Bottom line - if you can afford em, grab as many as you can! The weight savings add up and the functionality is pretty unmatched for something this light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Middle weight/size biner with a heart of gold solid racking biner. before i got cheap i just used hotwires to distinguish between cams and draws while racking. now i dont care anymore, but its still a great midsized biner, super strong, ready for any application, with the BD stamp of bombness. You can get those stupid tiny biners for your 4' girl, or the massive ones that make you feel like a big man, but these are just fine for all those super manly moments when you realize what really matters about a biner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid carabiner; my go-to This is perhaps my favourite all-around binder. It is, to me, the perfect size - slightly larger than the Neutrino, but not overwhelming, like other non-lockers can sometimes be. The gate opens easily and clips reassuringly, and the size is just right for a grappling hand. ,,Black Diamond did not overthink the design, instead producing a simple, smooth, functional piece of equipment that is reasonably priced and aesthetically pleasing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome carabiner easy to handle, light weight with no compramise in size! These are great and finally a much needed improvement on the BD Hotwire, I have a have always been a fan of the Mammut element but with the new Hotwire being the same weight and offering a slightly larger / easier to handle carabiner it definitively takes the cake without breaking your wallet. These will be great for ice climbing when you have to fumble around with clunky gloves to make clips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very light, very strong, and feels solid I like pretty much everything about it, except for the quality of the anodization. Maybe it's just mine, but the wear on it the first time I took it climbing with me was a little higher than I would have expected. I don't think it will really impact the performance, but it's something to keep in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite wiregate biners. Load up! I've ordered at least one of almost every wiregate around to find which one I like best, and the HotWire wins. It is cheap and functional, sized perfectly, and quite frankly blows some others out of the water. If you are looking for an awesome wiregate, look no further.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Performance, The Best!! I first used the carabiner sport climbing and it was probably one of the lightest and easiest to clip carabiners I have ever been able to use. They are the best you can get for the price! I suggest buying several of them for your favorite pieces on your rack!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Wire Gate So a Biner is a Biner, these are about as good as they get without dropping more than $10 each. Wild Country Helium's are lighter and keylock but other than that I would say you cant beat these.
