Here's what other sites are saying:

Introduced in 1971, this timeless form of pro has retained its relevance as the most versatile, inexpensive protection available to climbers. Their unique hexagonal design allows a Hexentric to fit four different crack configurations. This means that a Hex has a comparable range to a similarly sized camming unit, but is lighter and doesn't cost a king's ransom. Extremely easy to place, a Hex can provide surprisingly reassuring placements in terrain where other camming devices fall short. This set comes with Black Diamond Hexes #4 through #10. SET INCLUDES BLACK DIAMOND OVALWIRE CARABINER.

Versatile, lightweight, passive protection.. . . Asymmetric hexagonal design allows one hex to fit four different crack configurations. Great for constricting cracks and pockety walls. Thin cable works great in extremely bottlenecked placements and provides superior durability.
