HB Alloy Offsets - #7s/#10 to trade for #9s

It's a bit odd, but I have four #7s and one #10 I'd like to trade for two or three #9s if anyone has such a complementary odd mix of them...


I'd trade 2 for 1 as well if you only have one #9 available.

Why not just get the DMM version? They're made from the same mold.

The #9 DMM is larger than the #9 HB. That and I had a set of the DMMs and ditched them - didn't like them.

I accumulated a bunch of HB's off ebay after the company folded - but in the process I ended up with a lot of #7s and #10s, and few #9s. Just attempting to balance it out to full sets so I need two more #9s. Sorry for the typo in the first message.

Sorry, I only have an extra 7 and 8. Would help out if I could.

Unfortunately reality doesn't hinge on your belief.

Dude, I'm missing a #8. Will you sell me yours? Seriously. PM me if your interested.

I'll have another look when I get home and let you know. You have any extras? Maybe we can swap?

Mysteriously, my missing #8 has transformed itself into a missing #7. I don't have any extra HB's, but perhaps we can work out a cash deal? I'd love to have a complete set again.

Also weird - I have left of my 2nd (actually 1st) set og Offsets:

11, 10, 8.

No nine.

And the Nine on my lead rack is tweaked.

I'm guessing ole #9 was the most sticky HB offset, the easiest one to get stuck?

Quien sabe...!

I went climbing on Angus's lead rack this past weekend. I bought him a set of the new DMM offsets.

Why?

Well he had a set of HBs but every time we climbed on his rack... no HBs!

WHATTHEFUCK dude???

He was SAVING them lol! I was all, well what GOOD ARE THEY at home? He was all, whatever.

So I bought him a set of the DMMs. On the lead on Saturday I went to place one and the lazy fuck hadn't glued the heads down yet.

ARRRGGGGHHHHH! I COULDN'T FIND THE NUT!

Seriously, I pull out the wad of nuts and all I see is wires. The heads had all slipped down. Cuss words ensued.

What a tard bucket! Glue those DMMs DOWN. Sheesh, DMM really screwed that up but nothing a little dab O glue won't fix.

Just take a good whip on each of them. Easier, and far less work involved than gluing them.

The Dingo don't whip like he used to.

Gluing is far easier than 6 months rehab (unless you're asking me to give up the glue sniffing... YOU'RE NOT ASKING ME TO DO THAT ARE YOU DR FEELGOOD?

Why would DMM fix my #9 HB offset. I told them not to wank on it!

When HB went kaput I also set my offsets aside to avoid losing them. I wanted to save them for routes where they mattered most, aid routes in particular. What I discovered was that regular nuts work just fine almost all of the time. I'd become falsely dependent on that taper.

I haven't put them back on my standard free climbing rack and don't plan to.

Not sure what you climb, and that might be true of most granite, but definitely would not be the case on our basalt where HB's rule.

I sold my 9. Only have a 10 left. Anyone out there want to trade that for a 5 and 7 BD Stopper?

For that matter, I can swap small Tricams for the 5 and 7. C'mon, everybody's got an odd biner of bootied nuts. Take a look thru them.
