DMM - Alpha Sport
The new gold standard in solid gate sports carabiners? Certainly the best looking and super easy to clip.
The bent gate option is the rope clipping end. With a deep, bent gate clipping is a dream, the rope seeming to fall into them. They also have a healthy radius where the rope runs, reducing friction and having plenty of metal to ensure a long life. Nice and durable and the strong gate action minimises gate flutter, maintaining a full strength, gate closed position.
Easy to identify with the deeply curved gate and the bright red anodizing these are the best of the best to upgrade your Sports climbing quickdraws.

I use this a racking carabiner for a set of nuts, as the wires can be freely rotated around the 'biner to select the right one, without getting snagged at closing point. Also handles great as a sport 'biner for clipping to bolts, though I only occasionally use it for that. The DMM Alpha shape (used in both Alpha Trad/Sport (full sized 'biner) and Alpha light (small sized 'biner) is my new favourite shape and I've just ordered more from Dick's. P.S. Dick's prices are so good, I buy all my gear there, despite being half-way around the world. Australian stores cannot match their prices, even when shipping is factored in.
