Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber pro! When I first started climbing, I was skeptical of these guys. But now when I see a great nut placement, I have no doubts that it will hold. These are essential for almost any trad climb and don't weigh much at all. Much of my climbing is in Eldorado Canyon where these are simply a must have. I don't think that there is anything to be improved upon with these nuts. Black Diamond has their incredible reputation for a reason and these nuts will last you a lifetime and will always keep you safe. These do require more thought than a cam placement, so if you are new, find a place to practice placing various sizes of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your first trad purchase! I know how it is. You've gotten the trad bug (or maybe even the top rope bug - those are itchy too) and want to start buying gear. After you've covered all the gym basics you're going to want to start building up your rack.,,,,These nuts are a great first piece of pro. They are high quality, and fit snugly in just about everything you'll come across. Plus, if you're building a rack on the cheap you can buy a couple every pay day and still not break the bank.,,,,Note: the two smallest sizes are really only useful for bodyweight placements in aid climbing. They aren't really built to take a hard fall or build an anchor. Use a smallish cam for that. All of the rest of these guys are bomber though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as they should be Stoppers have been around the block and can be spotted on nearly every rack at sometime or another. I picked one up as a booty. It fits in decently with my DMM Wallnuts (much better than stoppers) but just isn't quite as good as it should be. Due to its design, it never seats quite as well as the wallnuts do and has a tendency to get stuck more often. IMO go for the wallnuts and leave stoppers for booty gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They are strong due to the wire's continuous nature and color coated The good thing about these is that the wire is stronger than other nuts because it's only welded in one spot as opposed to two in other nuts. Other nuts have their wires attach to the top of the nut in two separate welds. This design, as my instructor has told me, is weaker. Moreover, these nuts are color coated so as to make it easier to know what sizes they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some of the best nuts on the market These are the classic nut design, awesome and bomber placements and backed up by the reliability of black diamond. Very nice pieces, a must have for any trad climber. They seem to be easier to remove than a lot of other brands (notably DMM) which can make it a lot easier on your second, and overall this design proves that simple can be extremely effective!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable, Cheap, Salty Black Diamond consistently designs really great burly gear. The stoppers will stand up to the abuse of somebody that is better at falling than climbing. They generally fit well, though I feel like offsets like the ones produced by DMM tend to fit better in pockety placements and runneled cracks. That said, I have these on my rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you 9, you saved my life this weekend so I could come back and write this review. 9 is my favorite, but only cause it caught my crazy fall. 9 isn't intrinsically better than the other sizes - OR IS IT? Anyway...the nuts themselves are standard. I bought the set 4-13 to start my trad rack and will replace them someday if I ever have to leave one in a wall - hasn't happened so far though! Phew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from totally rockin! LOVE these stoppers. Ironically, I just bought a number 7 and don't use it for climbing. My climbing buddies and I made necklaces out of them. Kinda like a brothers-banded-together-by-rock thing. Just bought some cordlette from REI and did a little double fisherman's know and BAM, sweet necklace!
