Upgrading my biners 26-Sep-2008 At 1:40:10 PM oweng
Pretty much all my biners are Trango superfly, and im happy as larry with them. That said, I havent tried any other super light biner (heliums etc), so I cant make any comparitive claims.

The superfly wiregates weigh in at 30g each which is bloody good for a full sized biner. I also got 3 or 4 superfly's with standard gates to clip carrots with, and have a couple of the superfly locking biners.

So yeah, my experience with them has been good. I got them from Pinnicle, who dont seem to stock them now.

Overall if your climbing trad, I think its well worth going for the lightest biners you can find. 50 biners by 10 to 15 g saving is a saving of 1/2 to 3/4 of a kilo. Even if thats doesnt make you or break you on a route, its nice on the walk in!
