Summary

Easy clipping and an extremely reliable draw. What more is there to say?

Pros

  • Easy to clip
  • Rubber stopper keeps biner from unnecessarily moving
  • Nice size dog bone

Cons

  • 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.
