    Save some weight and try a Dutch Biner instead. Or a Dutch Clip.

    Hey storm1,

    I would be interested in a group buy if there were to be one. Maybe a few of your Nova Scotia hangers would be interested as well. If there are enough interested in a group buy please let me know. I am leaving in the morning for work offshore for three weeks (3 weeks on & 3 weeks off) so I won't get to check my messages for the next three weeks.
    Take care,
    Bluefin

    I use the Nanos but either choice is fine.

    I have both. I think the Nano's are a little lighter then the Metolius. I would choose the Nano's for this reason However, I use Dutch Clips or MSH.

    Camp banks are the lightest I have been able to find. Rearching biners and rings to use the "Mcsharron" garda hitch. Using two camp nanos biners, one on each end, and four rings, two/biker only.adds a total 3oz to the set up :-)

    Whichever one you can get cheaper, neither has an advantage.

    In my efforts to go lighter biners were the hardest thing to give up. I just liked playing with them. I switched to dutch clips and love the simplicity and the weight or lack thereof.
