My Nomics creak at the pick end when I place a lot of weight through them. Do other people experience this with Nomics? I don't think it is anything to worry about... but just checking.

I always take the mick out of mates using nomics or ergos when tooling cos your right they do creak and sound like there about to snap anytime. But they never do......

In reply to Big Lee: I know 2 or 3 people with nomics and I've heard them all creaking when used in a high load situation (overhanging roofs when all/most of their body weight is on the tool).

In reply to Big Lee: Never noticed this on mine with dry picks fitted, which are you using? Will have a listen next time I have them out.

Yeah just to confirm I'm only talking about high load situations I.e. upside down in a cave.

Never heard them creak on a grade 4.

Yes, just high load situations. They sound like my car rear suspension. At least I know I am trying hard. Maybe I'll climb with headphones like Mark Twight if they start to annoy me.
