Expresses are not cheap. The Spirit Express is an excellent choice, light, robust and easy to use.
Bought a set of these 3 months ago and sadly haven't had the opportunity to take them outside yet, so this is based on use at the gym and general feeling.
Not the lightest, not the prettiest and expensive.
As soon as you grip one of these, you know they are a great product. The dogbone is stiff and ergonomical. This makes them easy to grab, both from your harness and on the wall.
The biners are in a classic shape, a bend gate and a straight gate, standard Petzl colour. Nothing special!
But everything just feels perfect. The gate spring have the perfect tension. They are very easy to clip, but still feel sturdy.
Overall the Spirit Express are very confidence inspiring and for sportclimbing I cant see myself use anything else.
