Just wondered if anyone could point out some excellent winter wiregates for scottish mixed stuff, particularly for use on extending runners,the reason I ask on here is just to get some hands on knowledge and experience rather than what the descriptions say on retailers websites?

Agreed - Spectre 2s or Wild Wires are my choice.

In reply to samsimpson: The normal suggestions for the best full-size wiregate krabs these days are DMM Spectre 2 or Wild Country Heliums. There are currently great deals on both although I'd edge towards the Heliums:

Spectre quickdraws can be had from Rock&Run in any length sling length for 10 each http://www.rockrun.com/products/DMM-Spectre-2-Quickdraw-25cm.html

Helium quickdraws can be had from Go Outdoors from 10.27-10.57 e.g. http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/helium-10cm-quickdraw-p162489

You've then got options including:

WC Nitro (budget version of the Helium) 3 quickdraws for 27.00
http://www.rockrun.com/products/Wild-Country-Nitro-Quickdraw-3%252dPack.html (or 9.50 each http://www.rockrun.com/products/Wild-Country-Nitro-Quickdraw-10cm.html although if you were being really cunning you could get Go Outdoors to price match and get them for 8.45 each!)

or

WC Wildwires (a bit heavy but cheaper) for 4 each http://www.v12outdoor.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=234&products_id=3112&oscsid=aupqnc8...
