The Spirit Express quickdraw has been refined for 2013 with lighter biners with a wider gate opening, and a slightly longer short sling version for even easier clipping. Both straight and bent gates have been flattened on the outside to make clipping smoother and easier, and each karabiner is now 10 grams lighter at 39 grams.
The Spirit Sling is still nice and wide, so you can grab it and pull when you are working on a route. It is also very stable with narrowed ends to help the karabiners sit properly and a Petzl String to hold the karabiners in place, so no annoying rotation of the biners while you're clipping.
The Spirit Express Quickdraw is a truly a benchmark sports climbing quickdraw, ideal for working sport routes.
