I'll concede that I use the smaller 3 of the set more, but I've used all the sizes plenty of times.

I have used two two biggest sized offsets a few times, not as often as the smaller sizes though.

Ended up passing on the wallnuts and getting a set of DMM brass IMP's.
My passive rack now consists of:

BD stoppers
DMM alloy offsets
DMM pea nuts
DMM torque hex's
DMM IMP brass nuts
Viamont wired tricams

I think that will do.

When I was in Yosemite last month, I had a double set of BD stoppers and a full set of Wallnuts. I found myself using the BD stopper way more often, simply because they fit the cracks better on the climbs I was doing. This is nothing earth-shattering, just reaffirmation that the correct nut depends on where and what you climb.

On the topic of the offset alloys - my largest size is the red and I was wondering how often you guys place the larger grey or blue? I place the red a decent amount, but those other ones seem pretty big for an offset to be used often.

I still own a set of HB offsets (no anodized colors). I use the largest three here in NH constantly...tons of applications for them here in New England in these funky granite cracks. The Wallnuts are my second favorite set of nuts.
