/ micro wire identification
Looks very much like the Micro Rocks I used to have decades ago but almost never used due to the wire being virtually the same width as the nut! I probably still have them somewhere. Pretty sure they weren't Faces - probably Wild Country.
They look very similar to a set I bought about 10 years ago in Australia made by a guy in his back yard who was very famous but whose name I forget.
I think their intention is to slow you down as you pass by the pro on the way down.
RPs. That was his initials.
Do they a plastic cover on the loop, brown or purple or similar?
If they have RP stamped on them, then this is it.

Definitely Micro-Rocks. Useless they were, and fairly rapidly consigned to the bottom of the box in my case.
I remember a rounded micro nut called 'Stones' but not sure who made them. Still have a couple.
It was Wild Country...
