Petzl Spirit Carabiner
The Petzl Spirit Carabiner is maybe the oldest and most popular sport climbing carabiner. More than a decade ago, Petzl's innovative keylock design of the gate was the first to eliminate the problem of the notch getting snagged on the bolt hanger when cleaning a steep sport route. At the time it was revolutionary. Today there are many keylock carabiners out there but the Spirit remains one of the best. The feel of this carabiner along with small details like the tiny gate grooves make this one of the best biners for clipping and un clipping bolts. The rope ran very smoothly through the Spirit. It also holds a number of knots well. In a figure eight holding test it took three figure eights and still had room for the gate to open. The gate is very durable and rarely gets sticky. No other carabiner has come close to topping its smooth action, perfect ergonomics and durability The Petzl Spirit Carabiner is made for clipping over and over again.
