Review 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: ratmnerd, 2006-06-03

these were excellent value for money, as i bought them direct online for $30. however, having received them, i have founs that their boxy shape can make finding decent placements quite hard at times. however, i supplements these with a few HB curve nuts, and found that the combined rack sits well. as all the others have said, the heads can slide, but i didn't find this to be much of a problem, as i can remove them if well stuck by pushing the cable thru then tugging on the higher loop thus formed (ie at the thicker end) to remove them. all up, a 4 simply because they are a little boxy for my liking.

The saddle ridge on these makes it sit like a lock. Disappointed that these don't have numbers or colours on the nut, but it works alright.

Problem is, for anyone who seconds you, they will soon hate you to death. These things are so damn hard to get out.

Good for leaders, sucks to be the 2nd =P

For the areas I've climbed in, I always seem to find the best placements for these nuts. Textbook-perfect placements. For that reason, and the price, these get a 4 from me. 5 if they were anodized.

These are a nice addition to my Smilies, if there is a placement that the Smilies arent quite fitting, it seems these nuts work well. For the price, its a hgreat way to add some variety to your nuts.
