    Stand out when they hit you in the face after being sucked through the anchor's quicklink?

    Careful there, we'll be hearing from Oldno7. No I mean are these fungible or is one a better buy or function better than another?

    I have a couple Trango Superflys and I love them. I haven't tried any of the others under 46g.

    I think the BD Positron's I recently picked up for $6.35 are the lightest. On the wallet anyway.

    They were on special at Backcountry Gear, picked up 6 along with some other gear. $7.95 now. But I see they're $5.99 at ALS, if you can spread the shipping or reach $75 for free.

    The DMM Phantom is quite a bit lighter than the Positron and it is a keylock. As for finding the best prices try spadout.com. Best tool for shopping for outdoor gear ever invented.

    I edited the original post to include which carabiners are keylock. To see pictures of all them in the list, go to my blog post: http://neildjohnson.blogspot.com/201...arabiners.html
