I'm about to purchase some Leeper cam hooks, and I was able to find only one post that gave advice on sizes.

The catalogs list 4 options:
mini
narrow
wide
fragile flake

The post said 'medium', but I'm not sure if that means the narrow or the wide.

If I was going to get 2 or 3 hooks, what sizes would all you expert aid climbers recommend?

Thanks.

I'd get all four if possible, and double up on the middle and large for a totla of six cam hooks. They aren't that pricey. But if only a couple are in the budget right now, definitely get the middle and large. I have a fragile flake that I've never used. The small one gets occasional work. But it really depends on where and what you are climbing.

FYI -- middle = narrow
large = wide
