Petzl Ange L
Here's what other sites are saying:
The new generation ANGE L carabiner from Petzl represents the middle ground between the traditional gate carabiner and the classic wire gate carabiner. It combines the fluidity of the spring gate with the lightness of the wire gate system. Petzl's MonoFil Keylock technology and the H-profile make the ANGE L carabiner weigh a light 34 grams and provide an optimal weight-to-strength ratio. So it is particularly suited to users looking to reduce weight while keeping the functionality of a standard size carabiner. The shape of the nose is designed to optimize clipping and unclipping.
The standard-size Petzl Ange L carabiner features the MonoFil Keylock wiregate system that combines the fluidity of a spring gate with the lightness of a wiregate for easy clipping.
Lightweight carabiners like the Petzl Ange reduce the amount you have to carry up the rockface, the longer the route, the greater the savings.. . The ANGE L carabiner is light (34 g): it is ideal for reducing weight when climbing. It is also useful in alpine conditions for those looking to maintain comfort and maximum strength while limiting their weight to a strict minimum. Petzl's MonoFil Keylock ensures smoother opening and closing of the carabiner and a much longer lifetime compared to traditional wire gate carabiners. The wire gate is protected from lateral rubbing (against rock, etc). The unique H-profile allows an optimal size and strength-to-weight ratio. The indent on the bottom of the ANGE S and ANGE L carabiners helps keep the sling in place so that the sling is properly positioned on the carabiner. The surfaces that come in contact with the rope and with the anchor are wider, favoring passage of the rope and reducing carabiner wear. The nose of the carabiner has a hole that allows ice, snow or dirt to be cleared out. The deflector works with the shape of the carabiner to allow proper positioning of the carabiner on its major axis.
A hybrid between light wire gates and quick spring gate biners, Petzl's Ange L is light and perfect for reducing weight for climbing, especially for alpine applications. This standard-size biner's skinny gate has a MonoFil keylock that opens and closes smoothly and a nose with a hole in it that can be cleared of debris.
