- Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you're looking for nice, lightweight draws, the Cypher Echos are a great value for the price and weight. Whenever my friends borrow my draws on climbs, they marvel at how light these draws are. The straight gate on the rock side (looser dogbone, yellow draw) makes clipping and cleaning a dream. I'm perhaps one of the only people that prefer the straight gates over the wire gate on the rope side, but I still really like these draws; it's simple to clip and again sturdy.
I also appreciate that Cypher throws in a free Echo locking carabiner in their packs of draws; it's a nice added bonus!
