Has anybody tried out WC Zeros? I'm interested to know how they compare with Aliens for small crack aid / pro. At 0.22 inches, the smallest Zero seems to be quite a bit smaller than the equivalent Alien, but where the two ranges overlap in size, is one appreciably better than the other?

WC Zero's are VERY sexy!! The smallest friend is absolutely incredible and I would almost put it down as a work of art...!!

It is appreciably smaller than the black alien and is VERY light and looks great too. Perhaps the only thing that concerns me about the smallest two sizes, is their durability - they seem really fragile and delicate.

The larger sizes are comparable to the aliens and I would probably choose the later over WC. They do appear however, to be touch lighter.

Hope this is of help

I hopped on one of the zeros. It was tiny. I was 3 inches off the ground and scared.

i don't understand why you guys insist on using a bunch of these tiny cams, I refuse to believe that there is going to be a three foot long, featureless crack in which you cannot put in a small nut. but that's just me.

my main point is this. the problem with these tings in general is that they have so little range, you could do the same with a set of micro nuts.

But Hay, What ever turns ya on!
