DMM Spectre 2 Carabiner (Multi-Color 5-Pack)

DMM

We think of this as the Phantom’s big brother – the perfect option if you prefer the handling qualities of a larger biner. It’s certainly big enough to work well if you are wearing winter gloves.

We’ve made some subtle, but important changes from the original Spectre. For example it has a safer, deeper ‘rope basket’ – that being the techy term for the crook of the biner in which the rope sits during a fall.

We’ve also tweaked the design so it works better with modern skinny Dyneema. This means that the quickdraw tape sits in a neat and correctly aligned position.

Oh, one final thing, we should mention that the Spectre 2 is only 32g – that’ll be 3g lighter than the original Spectre. After all, every little bit counts in the weight saving game.

Top tip: It is important to always clip protection, be it a bolt, a peg or whatever with the same end of the quickdraw. On our quickdraws we’ve synched the rope clipping biner in a stable/captive position with the sling stitching and a rubber biner loop. We’ve also colour coded the biners (Silver: bolt, peg etc, Grey: rope) just to make sure you get it right in that moment of extremis.
