Beal Zest Quickdraw
The Beal Zest is a sport climbing and big wall quickdraw with strength, durability, and a lighter weight suited for longer routes. The Zest Quickdraw uses two different ‘biners of Beal’s: on the bolt-end is the Star Gate, with a straight gate to prevent wear when clipping into bolts and a keylock nose to prevent snagging when unclipping; on the rope-end is the Cosmo Wire, featuring an ergonomic shape, a wired gate, and a “Rubbiner” retainer to make the clipping of the rope easier and smoother. Thick sling for easier handling.

Been using these for months now, and they work great, having the carabiners a different colorway is super easy to lock them and place them on the wall correctly. Super comfortable string to grab on, and overall a great Quickdraw.
A very reasonable price for a sport climbing quickdraw
easy to use and ergonomic. I got a load of these for indoor and they've been perfect.
I ordered two each (short & long) of the following quickdraws to see which one I would eventually go with:
Petzl Djinn Axess
Black Diamond Posiwire
Black Diamond Positron
I went with the Beal. Really like the feel and design, clipping the draw is just so natural with the curved backbone. 10/10
