light weight, does the job

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've never used any other nut tool, so I have no basis for comparison.

Had this tool for 3 seasons. It has successfully freed every stuck pro in a variety of rock. Maybe the build of this nut tool has influenced how I clean pro... I don't 'hammer' or 'wrench' on my nut tool to get my pro out. I use it with more dexterity to free stuck pro. I worried that it might bend or break, but I haven't had this happen. It is incredibly light, I bring it on alpine climbs as well and the built in gate makes for easy racking.

The tip is rounding out from wear, but it has been 3 seasons. I see another 3-5 seasons before I will replace it with exactly the same nut tool.

I've used it to open beer bottles, but most tools can do that I guess?

What nut tool?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This thing is so light you for get you have it sometimes, the other review is right, its not for beating out super stuck nuts and hexes but, if you are on climbs that only have a few nut placements here or there and you are not aiding on them this thing is about all you need. The built in clip is money. Makes this sit nicely on the back of your harness and its easy to get on and off.

Another thing I like it for is carrying it as the leader, mostly for aid climbing. Sometimes there are good nut placements that are tricky or too deep in the crack to push the nut in there with just the cables, since this thing is so light and small its perfect.

Super Light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

At 21 grams this thing half the weight of most carabiners though it is not as burly as some heavier tools. If your climbing partner likes to set stoppers deep you might find yourself wishing this tool was a few inches longer and a bit sturdier. I have made this my backup since taking it along doesn't add much weight. I use a heavier steel nut tool as my workhorse. If I find myself planning a trip were shaving every ounce is an issue than I will be happy to have this in my arsenal.

Super sweet

This nut tool is super light and works great. The curved handle makes it easy to use when trying to pry gear out of the wall and the attached carabiner means you don't need more equipment just to take it with you. Out of all the nut tools I've used this is by far my favorite. Not much else to say about it
