DMM Wallnuts are tremendously useful on certain types of rock. Crack climbs where there are lots of crystals in the crack, for instance. The scooped out center can help out a lot. They're good for irregular or half-in placements and can be useful for flaring cracks. However, placing these nuts takes some getting used to. Practice a lot.

I like my Wallnuts, and I usually carry a few medium-sized ones with me. But, if I had to choose between them and good, old-fashioned BD Stoppers, I'd go with the stoppers in a second.

I am climbing mostly in limestone/dolomite type of rock and find the Wallnuts extremely helpful. They are quite similar overall to Wild County Rocks but I find the Wallnuts easier to place. Basically, I never go for a multi-pitch climb without a set of Wild Country Rocks or Wallnuts, even if the route is theoreticallly fully equiped with fixed protection. They are the number one type of passive protection I use.
