Summary

Great idea... never use them though.
None of my climbing partners will use these, and to be honest — I've only ever placed them out of curiosity. Because of the specific width — you are limited to finding cracks with that exact proportion for the camming-ball to fit. Realistically, any other nut will do. The wires get bent very easily, so the ball twists and turns.

Pros

  • It's a working nut

Cons

  • Hard to place
  • No one likes them
  • The wire bends easily
  • Why bother?

Great idea... never use them though.

They still hang on my harness, though I often discard them when selecting gear — they're just too limiting.

These are the only gear (apart from pitons) that will go into ultra thin cracks ie smaller than a black alien.
