Topic - Do Nuts have to be made of Metal why not Nylon?

SCrossley on 20 Jun 2012
I was reading an article about lightweight gear and it got me thinking, nuts weigh an awful lot, so why not make them of say Nylon, you know the white stuff they make chopping boards and hammers from, particularly 5`s and up, I could even envisage in a fall, them gripping better, a bit like an rp, maybe you would need to replace more often as they may get chewed but well seated it could be a great option and be half the weight. Any comments.
Cheers sjc
