I guess the first question is what you're using them for. My high angle rescue bag is going to look a heap different than a rec climber's gear. All of my stuff is NFPA G-rated for rescue. And weighs a ton compared to climbing equipment, or even backcountry L-rated gear. As long as they are stamped with the rating and are applicable for your intended task, I don't know if you could really chose a bad carabiner. I have mainly Omega and CMC Rescue brands.
