Good, but crossloads very frequently
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The edge of the gate will get caught on the belay loop. There's no record of any biner actually breaking under belay use, crossloaded or not, so this may be theoretical, but it can startle both belayer and climber if the biner suddenly rotates to the major axis loading when loaded. If you don't care about that, this is a reliable autolocker with an easy gate action. I had to lubricate it to prevent squeaking and stop it from occasionally catching at the 90% rotation point, after that it's been buttery smooth. It seems to wear well and is beefy.
Yes, I have experienced the same cross loading issue.
