|Description & Commentary:|
This carabiner was advertised as *New* in the Aug 1986 edition of Climbing, and a more detailed ad in 1986-Dec Climbing magazine touted it provided "The versatility of a full-sized oval with the strength of a D."
The gate protrudes into the interior, possibly increasing chances of crossloading and certainly opening up the rope to shredding.
