Hard on biners 2 out of 5 stars

I used the Coeur hangers for a couple of routes, but after a while I've noticed that the inner edge of the hole is pretty sharp and it's damaging the biners in case of a fall. I had to take all the hangers down and file that sharp edge off. Now I use Fixe hangers for all the routes that I put up.

There are many chocks on the market but these are the strongest. #4 (8mm) is rated at 8 kN, up to #8 (16mm) they hold 12 kN and # 9 to 11 are rated at 16 kN.
Great range too: from 4 mm up to 35 mm.
