I was looking on the net a while ago with a mate and we found some info on poly nuts and hexes, i was wondering, does anyone have any or know if they're any good or really anything about them.
Cheers
Bruce

I have never used them but i have climbed with people who have. They are bomber but they tend to 'seat' themselves in cracks really tight compared to the metal version. That is a good thing in my opinion. I would prefer them to stay in when i fall off and my second had to bitch and bash them out any day.

The word seat might be a bit mild, "weld" might be better as the second might as well unclip and keep going rather than try. Basically these might be an option instead of drilling for glue-ins...

I agree, they are absolutely shocking to retrieve if they have been weighted.
Besides , I kinda like the sound of "cow bells" ringing at the crag! :)

i have one of the #9 poly hexes that now resembles one of those raw hide chew toys after rover has had a go at it. i was climbing on rhyodacite (granite) so it chewed it pretty hard....but it saved my bacon so it was $16 well spent although i havent gone a bought a new one.
