Agreed - Spectre 2s or Wild Wires are my choice.
Heliums or Alphas for bling value?
As cheap and big wiregate as possible...
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!)
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...
