I have 4 Camp Nano quickdraws ([formerly] the lightest quickdraws in the world) brand new with tags. $20 each or $75 the lot. I'm in Horsham so you can pick up on a Gramps or Arapiles trip or postage at buyer's expense.



[edit: apparently the eldrid nineteen g is 4 grams lighter than the camp nano 23]

Those wiregates both ends should be great for bracket clips not. Surprised you didn't add that caveat, though with the ever shortening of routes, and bolt distances these days, four up isn't too far to fall . . .

what's wrong with wiregates?

He's talking about use with bolt plates on carrots. Some people prefer not to use wiregates as they can allow the bolt plate to come off the carrot -- very very unlikely but can happen. Don't see why someone selling wiregates needs to bother mentioning that though. Lots of people in Australia use wiregates, lots of shops sell them, onus is on the climber to know how to use his/her gear.

Far from being unlikely, not only is it easier for bolt plates to come off carrots, it is almost common whenever rope drag is involved if the wiregate is oriented for it to happen.

Wiregates on fixed hangers also tend to self unclip more easily.
