Love the shape. Hate the sling.

The shape of these chocks is outstanding. They work great like stoppers and cam like champs. I can't stand the dyneema sling, however.

I have had the slung rockcentrics for 5 years now and they are my favorite piece of gear on my rack (when I'm not in a desert splitter). Having them slung is perfect for trad lines, keep rope drag down and less movement of piece.
For aid, i like my Black Diamond wired hexes, because you can place them higher.
They are the best for trad

great hexes. I love the curve design and the dyneema sling. I find that the biggest 4 are most useful (6-9) and I barely use 3 and 4, but my first trad whipper was a 15 footer onto the 5 and it held like a champ. I do wish they would make some super big drilled out ones!!

Did a lot of weighing up between these and BD hexentrics before eventually about 3 months ago and have been extremely happy with them ever since, shaved a massive amount of weight off the rack compared to the FADERS hexs they replaced (the three largest faders weigh about double the entire set of Rockcentrics).
They offer the rock solid feeling when placed passively like the other hexs I've used (BD, Faders) but are far more stable and versatile in their camming mode. Lots of places where I would have put a long extender onto a BD hexentric and still worried the WC rockcentric cams up, locks in and won't budge.
Biggest criticism so far is that they don't make one size larger.
