Ii bought this for a friend as I already have one and it is excellent.
Beautifully made piece of kit, smooth action and the gate has a firm feel but isn't hard to open. Comfortably fits three clove hitches and will fit a fourth,so it's ideal for constructing a master point at a belay. It's quite large but is still light.
It's beautiful, and exactly as described. However, I am not a climber and I expected it to be 1/4 that size! So if anyone wants one....
Does what it sets out to do. Fits two clove hitches of a 10.2mm single rope comfortably and would fit three for a half rope. Not too heavy, classic DMM quality.
I have to agree. This is my belay carabiner of choice. It is nice and big for whatever ropes you use. It also sits well with the belay device and seems less likely to rotate or cross load than some.
