- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been using Wild Country Rocks for years so when these came out I thought they would be a great alternative for going light. To place them wide requires finding a near perfect v-slot, as they are so thin they have very little contact points/surface area. You have to set them really hard to make sure they won't lift out of the slot, or flip if you whip, which makes it a pain in the neck for the follower. I love the idea, and I'm sure with a lot of practice these could be a great addition to the rack, but I am going to stick with the original WC Rocks for now.
The make them single wire from 1-6, and in a double wire from 5-10. 5 & 6 are optional.
Pictures are off
Sorry but the pictures we are currently showing for these are incorrect. They should all be single wire. The pictures we are showing are actually of the "Offset" rock set.
