Get a little ballsy with DMM's Brass Offset Package protecting you on trad climbing routes. These six micro-stoppers protect in tiny cracks that cams and other passive pieces would never fit in. Made of brass, these nuts bite harder and boast a higher breaking strength than standard aluminum nuts. Just remember that the next time you have to run it out with one of these brass beauties underneath you.

I’ve been climbing on these for ~10 days of trad so far this year and love them. I have 4-13 BD stoppers ( which I also love) but I find these brassies work where others don’t! I haven’t fallen directly on any of them yet, but they hold beautifully. A couple days ago I was on a very thin seam that the guidebook said wasn’t well protected; I managed to put five of these in in 20 feet! I will update this review if I run into any issues.
