    S biners @ whoopieslings.com

    I now have a decent supply of S biners. Right now I have plastic orange, green and SS silver #2. I have plastic tan #2 on the way.



    Here is some testing I just completed.

    First is the plastic...

    Prior to load...



    Loaded... I actually got this just over 30#, but couldnt hold it and take the picture. It deformed a bit... But not bad for 30# on a plastic biner.





    Next is the SS. I have taken this to 50# with very little deformation, but again I couldnt achieve that and take the picture at the same time...

    No load...



    Loaded...





    I am not looking to sell these outright, but if you would like them added with an order, than the plastic S biners will be $1.50 and the SS biners will be $2.00 each.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    Apparently the vendor had a fire. So the tan biners have been delayed.

    Hey Opie, have you done any tests on the SS #1 S-Biners? I'm guessing my plastic #2's should be sufficient for my tarp ridgeline. Just wondering if the smaller #1's in SS would be any stronger? I kinda like the smaller size.

    Pizza, iirc the small #1 ss biners do just better than the plastic. Fine for a TRL.
