With how many rounds?
Has anyone heard of any published time / use / fatigue tests for quality steel carabiners?

Just looking at REI, $12-$35 depending on the steel biner.

Say you use one for 10 yrs; That's $1.20-$3.50/year. Possibly the most important, yet cheapest, peace-of-mind bit of hang gliding equipment we have.

Buying a new one and putting it on would probably take less time and effort than coming here, posing the question, checking back and reading the responses :lol:
