Go for the onsight, every time.
The Trango React Carabiner thrives at the crags so sport climbers can get their send on. It comes with either a straight gate for the bolt end or the bent gate for the rope end, and both have keylock noses for easy clipping and simple cleaning.

Well first off it's a carabiner - it's as strong as any other on the market and it's decently affordable. I have a couple of these for some alpine draws and they are great. The keylock nose is also awesome for my rack of stoppers - i.e - the keylock prevents the stoppers from snagging as I'm unclipping them from the racking biner.
