Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Oz Carabiner:

I use these for racking my cams (color coded rack pack of these) and for my alpine draws. They rack very well, having a very slim profile. They clip fine (not too small like BD Neutrinos/CAMP Nanos) and you get some weight savings vs the Hoodwire.

As others have said, the listed weight is actually much lighter than it really is. You only save a couple grams vs Hoodwires. If you already have Hoodwires, don't bother "upgrading" as the weight savings is minimal.

If you have solid (keylock) gates, I'd say upgrade to reduce the amount of gate flutter and weight. If you have wiregates or solid, nonkeylocked gates, I'd say upgrade. The hoodwires, like WC Heliums, reduce the chance of nose-hooking. BD QC lab results show that nose-hooked (either by hanger or sling) carabiners fail at around 10% of their full rating.
