As a small sz 12 street shoe, I ordered a size 45.5 in these. Out of the box the fit was a bit tight, which equated to significant pain on the first few climbs. after baking them in the sun on some warm climbs (~10 pitches) they fit like a glove and climb hard. The fat rand is priceless for the inevitable Teton crack jams here n there.

Definitely a great addition... I wouldn't use them as a nut replacement, as I don't feel they are as secure as a good ole chock, but they definitely protect when nothing else will, and with a strength rating for their size that puts other pro to shame. Their construction and design seems rock solid, just be extra cognizant of each placement as with any piece... Its usually not the gear that fails, but the rock around it.

anyone know why the CAMP #1 ballnut is rated for 7kN but the trango #1 ballnut is rated for 4.5kN? Is it really a different manufacturer... they seem identical.
