    Comments about Wild Country Rockcentrics:

    i just bought #5 #6 #7 i havent placed them on a climb yet but this past weekend i built some anchors at the base of my local crag just tryn to get the feel of them so far so good , the added bonus is the sewn slings this should help with keeping them slotted as opposed to traditional wired hexes

    Need wires

      Comments about Wild Country Rockcentrics:

      These set very well, better than black diamond and about the same as Metolious.

      The problem is I am only 5' 6" and it's often hard to reach the best placement. With the wired hexes I can place them by holding the wire for that extra reach.

      Comments about Wild Country Rockcentrics:

      I climb mostly on granite and basalt.

      Pros and cons mixed together:
      -on basalt, the crystals are small enough that the rockcentrics are not too bad to place. On granite, with its large crystals and irregularities, rockcentrics are finnicky time-wasters.
      -If you can get good at placing them and they are suited to the rock you climb, they're generally about as bomber as it gets. After getting a good one in, I feel like I could take a facter 1.5 fall on it, no problem.
      -They're lightweight
      -They're cheap
      -I don't like how noisy they are. I thought I'd get over it, but whenever I'm walking with a harness on, I tend to hold them so that they don't chime.
      -Dyneema is stronger than wire (and replaceable).
      -There are two camming placement options, but I hardly ever use one of them. There are two convex faces on one side and two concave faces on the other. The difficult camming option is where the small concave face is used--the crack size must be just right for it to work. Finding that sweet spot takes time, trial, and error (only good for a no-hands rest).

      I've had mine for about two years and I still don't feel like a pro with them. I've had a much easier time with cams, nuts, and tricams.

      Summary: I don't recommend these for granite. I would recommend buying a #6 and 7 to try them out if you climb different rock. I also don't recommend them for real hard routes. I do recommend them for alpine rock, where you'll often have no-hands rests and their light weight and strength are big assets.

      • Uneven cracks

      Comments about Wild Country Rockcentrics:

      I've been using the wired version of the Rockcentrics for years (size 3-9). I take them up every lead and they always seem to find their way into a bomber placement. I get the most use out of the larger sizes. Probably most useful in uneven cracks (like at Smith Rock). I wouldn't hesitate to get these newer slinged versions.

        Comments about Wild Country Rockcentrics:

        ive ad these for quite some time now and i have nothing but good luck with these, they are light and the dynemma slings are great because they are flexible keeping the pieces from moving from thier placement, unlike the wires unless your placement is in there really goo there is a chance of walking out of the crack.

        They are soo bomber for anchors, all around a great product, try them for yourself.

        Comments about Wild Country Rockcentrics:

        Currently I have only the sizes 5 & 6 Rockcentrics and I'm finding them more useful than I had imagined. I will add a few more sizes to my rack. Becareful about putting them in a crack very close to the size of the Rockcentric- they can be hard to get out later.

          Comments about Wild Country Rockcentrics:

          i've used these climbing in the gunks. i esp. like the sizes 4-6 which extend my passive pro from the largest curved nut upward. when you compare the weight of these hexes to metolius or bd, you find that they range from 1/3 to 1/2 less weight. that's a major difference. the coloring and dyneema slings are great. when i place one of these it feels bomber
