Spirit Express are best i have got. Very good handling and clipping.
As PETZL Spirit Express is sports climbing quick draw it is not very light in weight but reliable and easy clipping / unclipping with clean and smooth nose.
Ordered 6 pcs . Carabiner’s Orange Color tone of 2 pcs are slightly different ( lighter color ) from other 4pcs although production month are same but this is small issue for me as price were attractive
Like them very much.
Ease of clipping, this is one of the most popular quickdraws used out there. My partners also occasionally use it for trad. Would recommend.
Expresses are not cheap. The Spirit Express is an excellent choice, light, robust and easy to use.
