I haven't used any other brand of hexes (that might change in the near future) but I like these a lot for use in anchor-building (both multi-pitch and top-rope), or as a lighter-weight wide piece when I need more cams than I have available. I also almost always have an 8 or 9 on me in case I have to bail on it.

I got these to expand my rack and provide some slightly different sizes/shapes/tapers than my Wild Country rocks. I like them; however, I definitely still prefer the rocks overall, which is why I only gave them 4 stars. I can't say that one is better or worse than the other, but I feel like the rocks maybe place a little bit more securely and efficiently.

Other than that, these are the sizes to get in the BD line for general climbing. Some people also complained about the racking biner they come with (which I don't use)- I don't see what the big deal is, most nuts don't come with anything to rack them on anyway, so I didn't feel cheated by the lack of a "real" biner.
