DMM Phantom Quickdraw 25cm

The Phantom carabiners are exceptionally light wiregates which make for excellent quickdraws.

The Phantom is a small sized wiregate carabiner. Being smaller keeps the weight down but DMM have not gone too radical. DMM have said "Sure, we could have made this biner smaller, and as a result, lighter, but there comes a point when a tiny biner becomes a key ring – too fiddley to hold. Functionality is just as important as weight."

Apart from size it is the I-Beam hot forged construction that is the major factor in keeping the weight down. This design enables the Phantom to have as little metal as possible, whilst still retaining its strength, this is apparent by the recessed areas on the biner.

Compare the weight saved to another of DMMs popular quickdraws the Spectre 2. The difference in weight between the two is 16g (76g Spectre, 60g Phantom). This may not sound a lot, but over 10 quickdraws that’s a saving of 160g, so over two extra Phantoms worth. You can therefore think of it as being able to take more gear for the same weight, or less weight to climb with and for the walk in!

Quite simply the best trad

Quite simply the best trad draw around. Light and compact without being so small they're fiddly. Long flexible tape reducing drag. Simple clean design, no pointless coloured flourishes or extras and a joy to use. It'll take something seriously impressive to beat these. Definitely worth shelling out for

Good build and very light.

Good build and very light. Will have to buy loads more just so I can feel them on the rack.

Great functional and lighweight quickdrawer

Bought a couple of these to start replacing my old DMM wirelocks in a bid to reduce the weight of my trad rack. received really quickly, and wasnt dissapointed with them - a great lightweight biner allowing me to carry more drawers for the same weight and

makes you feel lighter than air

I've been using these since they came out they are very very good at reducing the drag on the rope, it sounds like you wouldnt notice it on a usual route but on their first outing I used two on a 20M pitch that I knew well, it did make a large difference

Clever design, lightweight and really useful.

These karabiners are really useful. They look heavy but are surprisingly lightweight and the difference between these and normal wiregates is not a problem. They are ideal for use on the rope end of long quickdraws to reduce rope drag when your placem
