Neil Gresham runs through the benefits of Petzl Ange carabiners and quickdraws, and explains how and when best to use them.
This news item may also be of interest for more information about the Ange:
"The Ange is stripped down to the minimum but still incredibly strong..."
"For trad pitches or long sport onsights where a big rack is required a huge weight saving can be made by using the Ange."
"A unique design is the single pin wire gate which has an incredibly smooth action."
"Additionally, Petzl's innovative String S system prevents the carabiner rotating, thus making rope clipping even easier still."
"Another feature is the snag free nose profile - the single pin wire gate slots into a cavity in the nose."
