Petzl Ange Finesse S & L Quickdraws

This is a great and lightweight quickdraw for sport climbers. Clipping in and cleaning these draws is a breeze. Highly recommended. I have been using these draws for about four months now and they have never let me down. Compared to my other draws, climbing with these you hardly feel their weight and are extremely easy to clip. Well made draw that is very durable and will last a very long time. Full review

Petzl Spirit Express

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. 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… Full review

Black Diamond Posiwire Quickdraw

Easy clipping and an extremely reliable draw. What more is there to say? The fact that draws have very minimal moving parts makes for a reliable piece of equipment, but a piece of equipment that is so important that it must be made well enough to not fail on you. I can say that I have yet to have a problem with these draws. I used to use Petzl Spirits but saw a set of these for a sweet price and decided to go for it. I do not regret that decision. The Posiwires are now my go to draw! Black Diamond… Full review

Wild Country Helium Clean Wire Quickdraw

Great draws, light and easy to clip. These are my favorite draws. They're light, and the keyless wiregate makes cleaning overhanging routes a breeze. Unlike a lot of light biners on the market the gate opens wide enough to make clipping a breeze.  Full review

Black Diamond LiveWire Quickdraw

I just bought a rack of 12 of these for Sport, and i must say they are sweet. A well balanced and smooth clipping draw for the rope and the bolt. The small changes between these Karbiners in this draw versus the other in BD line are evident in the increased performance of this Quickdraw. the keylock top slides easily onto even manky bolts with small oddly tapped holes, not that you want to clip those but there are plenty of them out there. On full sized hangers it almost feels like cheating… Full review

Wild Country Blaze Quickdraw

Great draw. Mine have 20 cm dogbones—perfect for trad. I'd be kinda nice to have wire gated 'biners, but for the price I paid I'm not complaining (and it's not like I need wire gates :P) Full review

Metolius FS Mini Biner Quickdraw

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,… Full review

DMM Phantom Quickdraw

These are my favourite draws for trad climbing and have kicked my venerable DMM Spectres into retirement. The combination of super light weight (26g), reasonable size and a gate open strength of 9kn makes them perfect for classic rock routes where you will be carrying lots of carabiners. The weight difference when carrying a rack of these is felt very easily and it really makes a difference on long, hard routes. They clip well especially considering their smaller than average size and don't mis-behave. Full review

Wild Country Helium Clean Wire Quickdraw

Got these at backcountry.com with a 25% off coupon code. These are some pricey draws if you pay full retail. These babies are very very light, almost too light. They took some getting used to after years of old ABC and Stubai draws. The keyless notch on the red clip biner is great for not getting the rope snagged. The full size red clip biner also has a rubber o ring attached to the sling so it will not move. For sport climbing you barely notice they are on your harness, I also carry about 6 of… Full review
