Rock and Ice Gear Review

The Firefly has the largest gate clearance, making it the least likely to trap your fingers—a good pick for folks with meaty digits. It’s also the easiest draw to grab; I could just squeeze four fingers around its spine. A good pick for those hoping to shed weight but not wanting to skimp on function. The non-anodized Firefly biner, however, would not open under bodyweight, yet the anodized version would.
