The Black Diamond Micro-Stoppers (formerly known as Swedges) are designed to fill the gap in the market left by the demise of RPs and they're the best thin crack protection available today. The Micro-Stoppers feature a heavily flared trapezoidal shape which gives them versatile placement options in near-parallel and flaring cracks. The Micro-Stoppers are constructed from copper-infiltrated iron which is softer than is used on large nuts to give these maximum bite on crystals and rugosities within cracks. These are particularly strong on shallow, flaring cracks like you find on moorland grit and granite as their low profile shape offers solid placements even in the sketchiest of cracks.
If you order the set of 6 Black Diamond Micro-Stoppers then it will come with a free Ovalwire Karabiner, a great racking krab which is also handy for use with pulleys.

I picked up a set of these recently to go with my set of black diamond pro stoppers. The main reason being I was aiming for some more difficult climbs and these seemed like the perfect choice. They compliment the stoppers perfectly and the dimensions are great as they fit into places that things like DMM peanuts just wonít make. Ill probably end up getting another set before long as the ones Iíve got are getting a little worn already! Not to mention some of them having taken falls.
For the price these things are great, definitely worth considering for more advanced climbers.
