sherbertwrote a review of Wild Country Anodized Rockcentric Hex on Dyneema Set #3-9 on August 10, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
These hexes are fun to use, and useful. However, I have not used any other brand or type of hexes. I debated between slung and wired hexes. Wired hexes are good for placing in deep cracks and would extend my reach (being under 5' I need every inch I can get) but I went with slung hexes to increase their positioning and camming ability. The curvature on these is almost enigmatic because no two sides are the same, and the hex is not symmetrical (BD and DMM seem symmetrical) which adds to their allure for me. They are curved to increase camming and/or rock security, and I love the different placement options. I figure that nuts are wired and can serve those purposes of wire advantages. Part of the reason I find climbing fun is the puzzle aspect. I have only led easy trad I have found these are bomber and there are so many places hexes can go, on the route, and making anchors. They are lightweight, attractive in colors, but noisy. Don't know why more people don't use hexes.
