Petzl Spirit Express
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $24
Carabiner does not snag rope or bolt when clipping due to closing structure. The webbing is thick and has a rubber piece on the "rope end" of the draw to prevent twisting. Best for sport climbing (of course!). A little more expensive than most draws though but quality seems very high.
- Non-snagging carabiners
- Thick webbing
- A little pricey
Everything on this product works the way it should. The material feels to be top-quality. The only downside is that a rack of 6 can cost over 100. Most racks of 6 quickdraws are much less expensive.
I have had these for a few months. I am not affiliated with Petzl in any way. I really do love these draws though. I can't wait to use them again when the spring hits!

Take your sport climbing to the next level with the Petzl SPIRIT EXPRESS quickdraw. Weighing in at a mere 100 g, this versatile 17 cm draw is great for reducing rope drag on long, traversing routes.
The Petzl Spirit Express quickdraw set is designed for quickly clipping bolts and extending gear placements so you can get through the crux and continue on to the top of the climb. Includes a Spirit straight gate carabiner on one end and a Spirit bent gate carabiner on the other; bent gate 'biner has been reworked to make clipping the rope even easier. H-shaped profiles offer an improved strength-to-weight ratio over the previous versions of the Spirit carabiners; each 'biner is 10g lighter than the previous version. Both 'biners feature keylock noses that won't snag on pro, ropes or slings, making them simple to clip. Surfaces that come into contact with the climbing rope are wider than other parts of the carabiner for smooth passage of the rope and reduced wear on the 'biner. 'Biners are connected with either a 12cm or 17cm Express polyester sewn sling. Rubber webbing protector at the bottom of the sling reduces abrasion while also keeping the rope-end carabiner properly positioned. The Petzl Spirit Express quickdraw set is available in 12cm or 17cm lengths.
