Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique - not like the DMM offsets Ahhh -- the subtleties of "passive" pro. When I first saw these, I thought "Oh, a set of offsets to compete with the DMM offsets, cool". Well, in actuality, the Black Diamond offsets are quite different and unique in several ways (see pictures). Firstly, with 5 stoppers in each set of the BDs and DMMs, the size range for the BDs sort of begins with one size smaller than the largest DMM and ends with one size smaller than the smallest DMM so the sets compliment each other nicely. Secondly, the BDs are "boxier", meaning the narrow sides are closer "in size" to the wider sides of each stopper. In some sense, I honestly think this makes grabbing a given BD offset a little more likely to fit in a particular crack you have your eye set on. Time will tell. Thirdly, the wires on the BDs are about 1 to 1-1/2 inches shorter than the DMMs and all 5 are almost the same length. This could make the BDs a tad less "wobbly" while placing (which is a good thing) but that is a really minor difference. Both BDs and DMMs have a fairly stiff, beefy wire on them. DMMs claim 12kn holding power. BDs claim 10kn holding power. Both strength ratings are "rock solid" for any falls on a good placement (pun intended). All-in-all, I am very happy I have added this set of stoppers to my rack. I climb a lot on fairly crystallized granite, relatively flaring cracks and for this, you can't beat a good set of offset stoppers. Be safe out there.
