The Black Diamond FreeWire quickdraw has two cold-forged HotWire wiregate carabiners on an 18mm wide polyester sling. It comes in two lengths, a 12 cm long dogbone and a 16 cm long option. Black Diamond recently updated this model, with a new color scheme and dogbone.
The Black Diamond Positron is a durable sport climbing quickdraw. It's been around for well over a decade now but was updated recently with some new colors and a thicker dogbone. This draw is heavy, but reasonably priced and is often a climber's first set of quickdraws, for a good reason.
To address the issue, DMM fitted its featherlight Alpha biners with hot-forged solid gates to make the Alpha VW Sport Quickdraw. The combination of durability, easy handling, effortless clipping, and a relatively low weight make this draw the perfect choice for sport climbers who expect their gear to work as hard as they do.
ANGE FINESSE quickdraw is equipped with the new ANGE S and ANGE L carabiners. Petzl's MonoFil Keylock technology and the H-profile make these carabiners ultra-light and optimize their strength-to-weight ratio. They are also extremely durable, as are the new FINESSE Dyneema slings. The ANGE FINESSE quickdraw is equipped with the STRING S to correctly position the rope end carabiner for clipping, and to protect the webbing from abrasion.
The Wild Country Helium is our Top Pick for Lightweight Quickdraw. The unique full-size carabiners have both wiregate and keylock functionality, and are a breeze to clip and unclip. As one of the lighter quickdraws we tested, they are ideal for long routes and hard on-sight attempts. The main drawbacks are the skinny sling, and the high cost.
