/ Nuts nuts nuts
Rockrun are selling the 'classic' set (1-10) for £40 which looks like a really good deal but I would ideally prefer anodised. The extra cost however is pretty massive so currently scouting around for a good price.
(p.s I already have a set of the really old unanodised dmm wallnuts)
However it is certainly worth keeping an eye out on ebay. There is at least one seller who seems to have brand new sets of 1-8 available occasionally, such as item 380599978526 which sold recently.
IIRC the WC "classic" set is considerably heavier than the regular set. Watch out for that.
Plus, they'll last a long time (and re-sell on ebay at little loss) so I'd get the set I really want. Or rather, figure out which one thatg is, and wait for a deal on that.
Didn't WC change the shape of the Rocks when they brought out the anodised ones?
I only have the old style ones so can't compare but I seem to remember they were more tapered.
the old rocks are not flared on the sideways placement but the new ones are. Alsot the new ones are lighter. Possibly other differences too (I have some new and old) but I've not noticed them.
I like to have both due to the subtle difference in shape; for example, a DMM 4 may not fit but a WC will. I find this a lot, one doesn't quite fit but the other is perfect. Hence I carry both (A set and a half on single pitches up to two sets on multi-pitch routes).
What about a set of offsets then move into brassies?
