Topic - which carabiner?

pikadim - on 28 May 2013
Hi!
I need to buy a few carabiners. I climb with a BD ATC and Kong Slyde, and I'm using krabs from friends.

- HMS: I was thinking about a screwgate DMM Boa, 30kN Boa, 30kN Antivibe Boa, Petzl William, or?
- ATC: what model D shape for the ATC?
- Slyde: what for the Slyde?

On the blog of Mr Kirkpatrick, we can read that 2 BIG HMS + 1 D-shape carabiner should be enough; however we should avoid using the HMS on a runner/sling... (it gets confusing)... So what should I buy?
