DMM Torque Nuts

I've just received some of the new DMM Torque Nuts to test for UK Climbing. I will be using them for the first time this evening, but you have to admit - regardless of how they perform, they're rather pretty aren't they? (click the photos for high res versions)

And you'll all be pleased to know they still make reassuringly traditional clanking noises when carried as a bunch.

Nice. Do you reckon you'll get to test DMM's new double-axle cams?

I'd love to, but I have a sneaky suspicion that some seniority might come in to play with those beauties and they will get baggsied by one of the editors. :-)

It should also be said that Kev, Jack and Mick and all climb much harder grades than me, so perhaps hex replacements are an obvious thing for a mid grade punter like myself to test. I know Kev is reviewing the the new IMP micros, I occasionally place RPs, but with the type of routes he is doing, he is more likely to be placing them regularly.

Well so long as they still clank :)

A hex by any other name is still a hex :)

Yes, but very pretty, colour coordinated hexes!

I still have your krabs and sling. I can bring them round to you - I've had them so long. Sorry!
