Light, right and loved by all "The Superlight Rocks are going into the review this issue. I liked them so much I had to get them in. They are the best nuts I've ever used. Having just the one wire lets them seat much better than standard nuts. I was very surprised by the difference. I thought it would be slight, but it was massive. Even in regular, deep slots they are less problematic to fire in, and then they seat better. I did notice that the Superlights were roughly a regular Rock, cut down the middle. For my uses, I place Rocks (and all nuts) in their narrow profile probably 99% or more of the time ... I can't actually recall ever placing a nut, aside from a hex, in a placement along its wide axis. So, for me, the Superlights are ideal ... I don't give up a thing, except weight."

Superlight Rocks are another breakthrough innovation by Wild Country.
These brilliantly versatile nuts utilise two existing technologies: the extrusion from the bestselling Rock with the soldered sleeve from the Zeros, to create a light hybrid unit. Designed to complement any rack by combining extreme light weight with a wide range of placements; their reduced width means they will fit in places where current wider nuts won’t and grab shallow placements and pinscars brilliantly.
One important thing not to be overlooked is that front to back these Superlights are exactly the same shape as standard Rocks and so are a direct, but very light replacement, and can be carried as such - or they make a perfect 'second set'. So for big wallers / alpinists / speed freaks and those pushing the trad limits the potential is enormous. And although at first glance Superlights may look very specialist or a little peripheral, these are an essential'addition to a rack and bridg the gap between micros and standard wires.
Importantly as their name suggests Superlights provide a saving of around 70 grams or 45% over the equivalent sized Rocks - a saving equal to a couple of Helium quickdraws!!
