Believe it - they are the best!
Metolius has answered the call for a USA made version of HB's standard setting offset nut! They stick to the rock so well, I feel like I could just throw them at the crack and be safe. Their shape is perfect for tiny irregularities in small fractures and these little widgets are super light! The offset silicon bronze material with rounded corners make a huge difference and in my opinion, set them apart from other small nuts, like BD's steel with square corners. Metolius gear is quickly becoming the workhorse of my climbing rack. Great value!

I have the free and aid set of these nuts and they are awesome. I would say they are the most similar offset nut on the market to the HB Brass Nuts which are hard to find no days. I would say next to the HB Brass Nuts, they are the best. Great for any type of rock----esp. pin scared cracks.

How small do these get in the 'Free set' compared to the black diamond offset micro stoppers? Im just looking for a set of small but strong micro stoppers for free climbing

I wasn't able to find any exact measurements but from personal experience I would say that the #6 in this Metolius set would be near the size of the #6 in the BD Offset Micro stopper set. The BD #6 may be slightly smaller.
