Troll Sprint Set of Five

A set of Troll Sprint wiregates - ideal for equipping deviations and expedition quantities of tackle bags! For the price, a seriously light, strong and compact karabiner.

Size on long axis 95mm, weight 49g, gate opening 22mm. Long axis strength is 27kn, gate loaded 8kn, gate open 8kn.
