The Kong Panic is an innovative quickdraw device designed to safely reach anchor points that you just can’t get to and is particularly beneficial for aid climbing. The Kong Panic has a wire sling that’s stiff but bendy for accuracy, while the gate of the carabiner can be ingeniously locked open via a spring loaded mechanism that closes and locks once you’ve connected it to the anchor, so there’s no chance of it unexpectedly disconnecting. An incredibly useful item that always deserves a place in your rack.

I've bought and used the 45cm version and I can say without a doubt its a very helpful tool for everyday climbing. If you are having problems clipping the first clip in on a climb or having problems with going through a difficult project Kong Panic will give you a longer reach in order to clip in the next bolt easier. Its simple and effective. Get it!
Nice little addition to the rack as it works as a longer quickdraw or as it's intended use, giving you the reach to clip the next bolt. The build quality is good and the details seem very thought out. Easy to work one handed. 10/10 would buy again!
The build quality and price (for specialized carabiner) are very solid for the product. Easy to carry in your equipment loops and does also work wonders with "branch extension" when clipping the first bolt down from the ground. Solid buy for sport climber to get some extra safety in crux moves before bolt. Slightly heavy if you're picky on grams.
Really good to have when you need it :-)
