Metolius FS Mini Biner Quickdraw
Price Paid: retail
I was first concerned about whether the FS Mini Draws would take some getting used to when clipping into hangers because of their noticeably smaller size.
Instead, clipping was effortless. They are jaw-dropping light and easy to handle.
I did notice that after the first day's use the finish on the aluminum scrapes off fairly easy; steel hangers will do this, I suppose. But hopefully they last me a while. I haven't had them long.
In sum, I'm very happy with draws. Sturdy mechanics, super light weight, and easy to handle. I've only used them for sport thus far.
