      BD Nuts are excellent pro. Place easily, offer excellent protection (when placed correctly), and are easy to carry/work with. Highly recommend these.

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Stopper Set:

        This is a great set of starter nuts. Plus, you get a racking carabiner! I have a set of DMM Wallnuts that complement the BD set. The Wallnuts don't come with a racking carabiner.

        The Wallnuts have a dimple on the rear face that makes them sit much better in imperfect constrictions. The Wallnuts are lighter. You also get a wider range of sizes with the Wallnut set, especially on the larger side. The Wallnuts are harder to clean, especially in the small sizes.

        The BD Stoppers don't find as many placements in pebbled constrictions, but are uniformly easier to clean.

        The reason why you need both sets: The main profile (wide, solid face) of the Wallnuts are much more curved. The side profile of the Wallnuts is much more tapered. You'll find places to put both.

        My recommendation is to start with both sets and put all the small sizes on one carabiner and all the large sizes on another carabiner.

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Stopper Set:

        I use these for racking my cams (color coded rack pack of these) and for my alpine draws. They rack very well, having a very slim profile. They clip fine (not too small like BD Neutrinos/CAMP Nanos) and you get some weight savings vs the Hoodwire.

        As others have said, the listed weight is actually much lighter than it really is. You only save a couple grams vs Hoodwires. If you already have Hoodwires, don't bother "upgrading" as the weight savings is minimal.

        If you have solid (keylock) gates, I'd say upgrade to reduce the amount of gate flutter and weight. If you have wiregates or solid, nonkeylocked gates, I'd say upgrade. The hoodwires, like WC Heliums, reduce the chance of nose-hooking. BD QC lab results show that nose-hooked (either by hanger or sling) carabiners fail at around 10% of their full rating.
