Wild Country Rocks were among the first to include curves on two opposing sides, which allow the Rock to be placed better, more solidly, and more easily, whilst still being easy to extract afterwards. The curves mean that the forces between the nut and the crack are distributed more evenly across three points of contact.
Wild Country redesigned their Rocks a couple of years ago by adding an anodized outer for ease of selection, and they made the 7-10 lighter, by using a new extrusion technique for the hollow Rocks. They also added 4 more sizes above the size 10. The actual shape is no different to the old style Rocks.
Wild Country are still offering the old style Classic Rocks as a set of the original 1-10, and we can now offer these at the exceptionally reduced price of £49.00!
