Debate/Jens: Five years ago, the producers started to compete for the lightest quickdraws making the carabiner (23 grams) and the webbing (7 grams) small and skinny. The normal sized quickdraw weighs about double as much (120 grams) and of course if you are up for a 20 quickdraw onsight push, you may start 1.3 kg heavier. However, both placing and clipping the quickdraw is more difficult and if you want to grab it, it will be more painful or you might even hurt yourself. The best light quickdraw should have normal webbing (10 grams extra) where the top of the lower carabiner should be roundish in order to support the grab. Is there any like this out there?
