Review by jwwolfe on Dec. 03, 2007
A light alternative to cams. I carry a #11 to supplament #3 and #4 cams on large cracks. Several different angles provides a veriaty of placements. The wire also alows for a little extra reach when placeing them.
I do not recomend cliping the rope into the wire, this may wiggle them out once you climb past. A sling will fix this.
If you want to clip straight into a hex I suggest the Wild country's slung hexes.

Simple and easy to use. Plus yo can use them to aleart bears as you approach ^_^
The larger size are lighter than cams of equal size.
not sure I like thme
Lots of cow bells out there, I like the Look of the Metolus Curved hexes.

Review by MikePB on Feb. 27, 2011
I only use the large sizes of these at Joshua tree to supplement cams. Being from the east coast I don't use a lot of huge pro. They are bomber and easy to place.
Noisy on your rack banging against each other. I feel like I am walking around with pots and pans banging. A bit heavy.

Review by genghis on Aug. 21, 2012
Great for doubling up without a lot of weight in sizes. Great pieces to help new climbers protect in larger sizes.
Nothing says newbie like the jingle of cowbells coming down the path. Recommend also switching the wires out with slings.

Review by NorCalNomad on Mar. 01, 2013
The 10 and 11 are great for supplementing wide cams cheaply and lightly. Having a large variation between narrrow and wide placements
You sound like a cow when these are racked, smaller ones not worth buying for more than $5 each

Review by JacksonLandFill on Jul. 09, 2013
Cheaper than cams. Great addition to any rack. Ideal in parallel sided placements. Economic way to double up. Good for anchors. mid and large place nicely.
super floppy... can be rehung with proper cord and knots. Cowbells on approach. Smallest ones are trickier to place.

Review by mfrench on Aug. 19, 2008
Great piece of pro...cables tend to be long and flexible enough to make useful camming placements, and stopper placements seem to fit great
#'s 10 and 11 are huge cowbells, #3 is slung with a 6kN rated cable...(usually just carry #4-#9

Feel bomber when placed. Colorful
Noisy if that matters to you.

The big hexes make a musical clanking sound that yells "newbie" to everyone in earshot.

on bigger sizes the cable bends making it harder to place

Perlon would be better.
