Re: What are those ?

these are the BD ones. I have one set of HB offsets and (based on my very limited experience) I like placing them better somehow.

Re: OH OH OH AHHHHH....

Thank you very much Chief.

"BD's work much better in Arches and all around the MOAB Area in the soft stuff, than HB's do. "

I'm happy to hear that as I blew the rei dividend on a handful of these BD ones :)

good one!

I understand you aided on it... I used similar sizes (DMM's) as active pro on some scary trad routes in England and Wales (but never tried to fly on them :)
cheers,

Re: good one!

thanks Kamil! Yeah, bulk of this route is aid. I have been using these Black Diamond offset nuts for free climbing a bit too but also have not had the pleasure of falling onto one :)

Re: Great placement!

thanks S.

"I keep sticking to the DMM's but not sure if you can get them in the US?"
I think so ...isn't DMM making these things based on an old HB patent or some such thing?
