Here's what other sites are saying:

The oval is one of the first shapes that carabiners came in, and it's still the best option when you're racking a lot of gear for alpine, traditional, and multi-pitch climbs. This Oval Keylock Screwgate Carabiner is Black Diamond's only oval locker. Its time-tested oval shape paired with a snag-free keylock nose brings this traditional shape to the modern era.

The iconic, symmetrical Black Diamond Oval Screwgate is the proven locking biner for big walling due to its smooth, uniform shape that reduces carabiner shift.
