....which of your pieces won't you give up?.... the one wire or cam that's been through it all, so ragged and frayed looks like the back end of a cocker spanials ass, but you just can't build up the courage to get rid of it....which piece of gear has been through a life of hell and can tell you all of its epic stories with just a glance at it?....do you keep something as momento if it holds your fall?

RED Alien... sometimes it seems like the perfect rack would be a dozen red aliens...

Runner up: Pink Tricam (which seems to fit a lot of the same spots as my red alien)

Ill have to agree with the pink tricam . . . I have two of them and use them both on almost all climbs I have climbed since owning them. They are bomber.

Single most used piece is probably the pink tricam as well, but in general it's my stoppers; you just can't beat a solid stopper.
