Should be a staple in every trad climbers rack. I also bring them on sport routes for sewing up the space between widely spaced bolts. Light, easy to use, and when you place one it inspires enough confidence to (almost) want to jump off
This set encompasses most of the pieces you will need for placing passive trad. Ten stoppers for a little more than the cost of one cam. The wires seem to be a bit smaller than on older BD stoppers - as a result, the stoppers will freely slide up and down the wire, possibly making extraction difficult.
"Great stopper set that will outlast you, and whoever you pass them onto"
Nice full stopper set to start any aspiring trad climber on his way to radness. There are one or two other options that are identical to the BD nuts but slightly cheaper. Not sure if the unity of BD color coding scheme is worth it, but you do get the free oval wire with these.
These stoppers do the job perfectly. There might be other stoppers that are cheaper but these are the smoothest and easiest to place stoppers that I have found. I love the curved side and tapered body that allows for greater range for each size. I wouldn't get any other stopper set (except for offsets)
These BD nuts have such a big reputation for being industry standard that I had to go with them, good choice. Great metal makeup, not too hard, not too soft. Tapered sides give you a ton of placement options. Cool colors make you climb faster and are great for color coding.
These are the best chocks out there. The color coding makes them easy to identify and the tapered edges let you slot them in a wide variety of cracks. Right now they are being used mostly for gear anchors on top rope but will hopefully be used for leading in the near future.
