So I'm about to get my first set of quickdraws and I'm mainly deciding between the Black Diamond Quicksilvers, BD Quickwires and/or the BD Freewires (I'm not a Black Diamond fiend, but they're just the cheapest at the local store). I've heard of gate flutter and that whole debate, but since solid gates still exist, I guess that debate is still up in the air. Is it a matter of personal preference and comfortability(?)? Or is variety the way to go? I'm just not sure what I should be taking into account.
Also, there are some longer draws (18cm instead of 12cm) for the same prices, should I consider getting a few of those instead of all 12cms?
If anyone has any answers/advice and/or personal experience I would love you dearly. Thanks, take care.
