The Perfect Nut

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

There's nothing to be said about these that hasn't already been said; they're pretty much perfect. Who needs cams if you have a set of these?? The only issue I've ever had is that I once broke the plastic part of a #7 after a pretty big whipper. The nut would probably still work fine bit I decided to retire it after that.

Strong, Durable, Reliable

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've been caring a small rack of these with me over the last couple weeks in France. They're reasonably light, so having 5 or 6 on a biner in your pack or on your harness is no effort. With a few various sizes, you're all set to rig up your improvised belay or protect yourself when needed. These, plus some tatt and a few pitons in your pack are a must for ski mountaineers traveling around in mixed terrain. I find these guys can take a serious beating and I have even rapped off a #3 + #1 equalized. The wires are a bit thin, but strong and durable. -@tj_skis

Amazing Stopper

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These stoppers are so great! I had to get a new one because my other one was stuck too good in a crack up in Little Cottonwood Canyon (its free game if anyone wants/finds it. ;) ) I spent quite a bit of time trying to dig it out until I took a moment to realize that since it was so stuck, it would have protected me no matter what if I whipped! Great piece of gear.

Great nut

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These are my first set of nuts. I got the whole set 1-13. I've used a every single nut in the set and have even had to bail off a couple number 1 nuts. They are strong and will hold. I recommend using a number 3 as a last nut to fall on. The number 2 and 1 are meant only for body weight as the wire is so thin. The nuts fit really well in the rock but seem to take a beating. A couple have some deep scars from just placing the nut itself.

BD stoppers are a must have in your collection of gear if you have any intentions of climbing trad. They are colorful which helps keep them organized on your rack. The simplicity of a piece of pro such as a nut is what makes them so cool. Double up on these bad boys and you wont regret it because it's easy to place a lot of them.

Must Have.

These are a must have for setting top anchors in New England, and they (a full set) have been just right in the situations that call for them. I'm glad I have them!

These stoppers are legit! I had to buy a new #8 after I blew a piece, fell past my belayer, and welding this bad boy in there. No better mid size stoppers out there.

Well some how my crucial #5 fell off my set without me knowing it. Though I could use double sets in these smaller sizes I'm not ready to break the bank. Until then its great to have a nice shiny new stopper!

Just got #6 and 8 for christmas and already know im going to love them. Already on my rack. Very solid feeling, wire is heavier too.

glad bd lets you buy individuals, as sometimes they stick in cracks too well or you value life too much to rappel off a chockstone. Not much different from other options though I like the HBs a bit better, but haven't had recalls like Wild Country either.

I had the small piece of plastic that wraps around the cable and crimp fall off of one of my stoppers, what is a good way to replace it?

I haven't had this problem myself, but looking at one of mine, I would say shrink tubing would probably work best, but electrical tape would probably work fine in a pinch as well. Also, this shouldn't effect the strength of the piece (though might make it a pain on the rack), but if there is any doubt, replace it. A $9 wire is not worth your life, or even the doubt in your head while shaking and pumped out 15 feet above it.

I've got two Q's. How big is #13, and will #2 catch me?! Its so small...

#13 is about the size of a golf ball (not as thick though) and #2 will not catch much of a fall, even in a bomber placement. It's intended just for aiding.

BD says that #1&2 are only for aid, but damn, I find great placements for them all the time. I dont run it out when i am above them, but I've taken small falls on the #2 and the wire held just fine, no frays or any problems. I will keep using them on lead and wont think twice about it.
