Looks good. A question about design philosophy, given that this is primarily a belay carabiner, why not build into it one of those devices for stopping it flipping round?

wow - you trash a biner in 6months? How much climbing do you do?

They probably do more than pretty much anyone else in the country, at least if they are still climbing as much as last time I saw them in Pembroke.

It does have one of those devices, when used with assisted braking devices like the grigri (which is what it was designed for). The spikey bit stop such devices moving around the crab (as does the screwgate, presumably).
