The Camp USA Photon Mixed Express Nylon Quickdraw. A combination of the best new carabiners on the market. The Photon straight gate has a keylock nose and large gate opening to help with cleaning on overhanging and wandering routes. The bent wire gate offers pure clipping bliss with its finely contoured gate and massive gate opening. Nylon dogbones hold biners in place on the sharp end and are thick enough to grab for emergency clips.

I have not used better draws.I've got 2 5-packs of these a few months back, and they are by far the nicest draws I've used. Whenever I lend them out, I get comments on how nice they are. ,,The mixed-solid combo is super slick - the solid gate on the top biner means that the draws don't get caught on the hangers when you're trying to clean 'em, and the wiregate on the rope side makes these things easy to clip and super light.,,So far, they're holding up really well. I would not use them to set up anchors though - leave that for draws that aren't so nice!!!

My favorite Camp draws. Hell... my favorite drawsCamp throws together a great combination of features in the Photon Mixed Express. The Keylock upper is snag free on bolts, making them easy to clip on and clean. It's also a narrow diameter, similar to the Black Diamond Vaporlock Screwgate, and you can easily fit the two through any bolt or anchoring device. Camp also sells replacements for the upper biner for when they wear out. The dogbone holds the wiregate biner snugly in place, making rope clipping super smooth and shedding a little weight.,,,,I've used these draws for several days on outdoor trips, and lots of lots of gym use, so they're seen their fair share of abuse on falls and even a couple whippers. The only noticeable wear is on the upper draw where it rubs on the bolts, and the 'whipper draws' each have a slightly deeper knick than the rest, but any draws will show those off a decent whipper. None of the dogbones are showing signs of stretching, and the lower biners still look brand new after extensive use.
