Color coding reduces the pump for sure. Next time you climb, think about the motions you make to ID a cam on your harness. Usually it involves flopping them up into sight with your hand, or at least flipping through the runners, then grabbing the one you want. This definitely adds a few seconds to the gear placement process. With colored biners you just grab and go...I was skeptical at first but they were the same price on my BD proform so I bought some and it really does make a difference for me. chosspector

Which way again?
I have a dream,... when all cams on my rack will fit the same size crack, regardless of color!

We didn't land on Plymouth Rock, Plymouth Rock landed on us!

Ah, racist anti-binerites. Wecome to a site populated by people who view separation by color to be progress.

Let freedom ring, from every mountaintop!

Dude! How bout mine?

Just when I think I ask silly questions, one like this comes along.

I bought the color coded pack because it was cheap. I then threw it on whatever gear needed a biner. I tried to match but having a metolious, friends and BD rack that fd not work so well. I just climbed with a guy that cussed out my rack over and over while he was leading. Said it was confusing, guess the color coding don't work. Bummer.

I do match them. I didnt at first and then started doing it later. I find it useful sometimes. Adam Fernandez

My cams have color-matching carabiners. Some are neutrinos, some are other brands. I started doing so before BD came out with the colored neutrino packs. It works for me. I don't give a shit if anyone else does so or doesn't do so. I also don't give a a shit if anyone thinks that I am somehow "doing it wrong" because I rack this way. What's with all the hate here lately?

oh bobby, what a delicate, sensitive, little flower you are. while i don't think colored biners are really necessary, i don't care if anyone uses them, likes them, or lives by them - to each his own. the phrase "your doing it all wrong" is a joke, thanks for taking the bait.

on a side note, i spent the last few days in the COR. I had a red biner on my blue #3; phew! damn thing saved my life! (another joke for the uptight ones)

carry on forum-erz. this stuff is serious!

I second your motion that neutrinos are annoying, irrespective of color.

Thanks to this thread I've now bought and racked my stoppers individually with color matched biners. Because we all place nuts too right? user id

Whoever this guy is, he's just plain irresponsible...
the better question is-

has anyone tried using color matched biners on their cams and not liked it?

anyone gone back to one common color?

anyone?
