    It looks nice but steel does wear, and when that insert wears through it will have a razor edge just waiting to shred a rope as the aluminum that becomes exposed wears away.

    I wonder how thick that insert is anyway...


    I’ll take the weight penalty of my full steel biner and not worry about sharp edges. And still get more use out of it.

    I agree the weight of my steel main doesn't concern me one bit, and after quite a few canyons it has almost no wear but is nicely polished

    The Edelrid inlay idea (leveraging the advantages of both materials) is impressive, however I agree with @Bootboy that steel wears too. I've seen stainless steel wear through to the point it could shave the fuzz off a peach.

    Foreground bar is almost to the wear through point, background is only slightly used/polished.

    i see this as " just a gimmick "

    and having witnessed the debarcle of the " wear plate " in the petzl croll [ google " the deadly petzl croll " for details ]

    i am now wary of " wear plates "
