The DMM Torque Nuts are probably the best hex's in the universe, no really they are very good in that they have multiple placing options with each one having a broad size range, the set covers a whopping 31mm through to 71mm. The colours correspond to other protection pieces in the DMM range, for example the size 1 matches in size to the Walnut 11 while the larger Torque Nuts match up with the DMM Dragon Cams.Essentially the Torque Nut can be placed in either a constriction, jammed into a crack or as a 'cam' where the curvature combined with the angled pull on the wire causes the nut to cam into place.
The Wired Torque nuts have a wire instead of dynatec sling. The advantage of wire is that the Wired Torque nuts is that they can be placed over year head more easily, and when placed in a deep crack they can be angled so the wire is pointing out. No more fishing around trying to clip a sling dangling back into the crack. They are also especially useful for winter climbers for the above reasons, the wire is also more durable than a sling and doesn't tend to get covered in an icy build up in poor weather.
