Wild Country Helium Quickdraw 10cm
review submited by:
When choosing new quickdraws there were a few things that I was looking for: light weight, easy handleability and carabiners without annoying noses.
In Helium quickdraws all of these attributes were very good. The weight is almost unnoticeable, clipping is easy and the nose does not get stuck easily because of its special shape.
The only minus that I have sometimes noticed with the nose has been with cement bolts (I'm not sure about the right word for those), which have been placed too deep into the rock. The special nose is slightly wider than on a normal carabiner, so when clipping it sideways to make it fit, it becomes a bit harder to manage, but just a bit.
Overall really these are a good purchase, if you are ready to use £18. If you are buying your first quickdraws, and for you money doesn't grow on trees, you can easily think about buying Xenon Lites for example. They're almost half the price, and don't weigh too much either.
