DMM Spectre 2 / Carabiner / Climbing / LightweightWe think of this as the Phantom's big brother - the perfect option if you prefer the handling qualities of a larger biner. It's certainly big enough to work well if you are wearing winter gloves.
We've made some subtle, but important changes from the original Spectre. For example it has a safer, deeper 'rope basket' - that being the techy term for the crook of the biner in which the rope sits during a fall.
We've also tweaked the design so it works better with modern skinny Dyneema. This means that the quick draw tape sits in a neat and correctly aligned position.
Oh, one final thing, we should mention that the Spectre 2 is only 32g - that'll be 3g lighter than the original Spectre. After all, every little bit counts in the weight saving game.
Top tip: It is important to always clip protection, be it a bolt, a peg or whatever with the same end of the quick draw. On our quick draws we've synched the rope clipping biner in a stable/captive position with the sling stitching and a rubber biner loop.
