The rockO is a blend of the traditional oval and the rockD giving it more strength than the standard oval.  The design is great for users that need extra room at the bottom of the carabiner while keeping their gear aligned.

    Best Oval On the Market

    Posted by David Baldwin on 30th May 2016

    With a smooth operation and a diagonal opening gate this is my go to for my Petzl I'D because it has no real upside down (from a physics standpoint), large gate opening (for an oval) and a great value edging out all of the competitors.
