January, 2016 — The Nitro Quickdraw is DiscontinuedThe Wild Country Nitro is one of the best values in a sport climbing draw. It is also one of the lightest full-sized quickdraws, but is narrowly beat out in weight by the full-sized CAMP Photon Wire Express Dyneema. The Wild Country Nitro scored near the top in all our tests but is less expensive than the draws that scored higher. It has a normal notched nose which is really the main difference between it and the Wild Country Helium Quickdraw which has a hooded and recessed notch. The Helium is cooler and easier to unclip from bolt hangers on steep routes. Other than that, the Nitro is an equally good sport or top rope draw (the Helium got our Top Pick Award). If you can afford the Helium by all means get a full rack, but if on the other hand you're on a budget, consider our Best Buy award winner, the Black Diamond FreeWire Quickdraw.
If you want a smaller, lighter version of the Nitro, check out the Wild Country Astro Quickdraw. The Petzl Spirit Express scored very close to the Nitro. The Spirit is heavier and more expensive but is a more durable sport climbing biner. We like the Nitro for more applications.
