Easy clipping and an extremely reliable draw. What more is there to say?
- Easy to clip
- Rubber stopper keeps biner from unnecessarily moving
- Nice size dog bone
- Maybe a little TOO easy to clip?
The fact that draws have very minimal moving parts makes for a reliable piece of equipment, but a piece of equipment that is so important that it must be made well enough to not fail on you. I can say that I have yet to have a problem with these draws. I used to use Petzl Spirits but saw a set of these for a sweet price and decided to go for it. I do not regret that decision. The Posiwires are now my go to draw!
Black Diamond advertises a simple and hard-working product and deliver on that promise. Clipping is never an issue (unless you back-clip and in that case you shouldn't be climbing if that is even a problem) and I never feel as if I'm fumbling to get a draw off my harness. The gate action works as if I've just ordered them from BD. Smooth and effortless, I never feel uneasy about taking a fall.
A 6-pack of Posiwires weighs roughly 1 pound 6 ounces. That to me is incredible. Such a valuable piece of equipment that does is job and keeps you safe for a weight that won't break your back when on those longer climbs.
All-in-all I couldn't speak more highly of such a well made product. If you're unsure, go with the Posiwires - you won't be sorry.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Black Diamond PosiWire Quickpack gives you six of our PosiWire quickdraws that combine the smooth clipping and cleaning of the Positron carabiner with the light weight and multi-purpose function of our original HotWire carabiner.
Your dedication to keeping it simple just reached a new level. You roll up to the crag in the back of your buddy's bus, slip on your duct tape shoes, and rack up a few of the Black Diamond PosiWire Quickdraws you bought with your shoe-hock money. Simple is the name of the game, and each straight-and-wire-gate draw cuts weight, while a positron keylock 'biner makes for snag-free clipping.
