If you were in the market for a new set of stoppers would you go for offset or standard and what brand?  I'll be doing 99.9% of my climbing in New England.

My standard set of Wild Country Rocks has served me well this year.  Well, at least until the recall last month.  I just started climbing trad in the spring, so take that for what it's worth.  If you don't have any nuts at this point, based on my experience and the advice I was given before I started putting together my rack, standard nuts are fine.  Offsets would be where you want to head when you want to double up on nuts.

As for brand, I don't think it's a huge issue.  I think the most common are going to be BD.  Somewhere is a thread I started a year or so ago about building a new rack (I don't remember if it's in this forum or the trad forum).  Not sure where you are with putting together a rack, but it might be worth a look if you don't have much at this point- tho, as things go here, it did dive into discussions on the merits of tri-cams, truck tires and the number of lockers you should have as I recall! :D

My standard rack is a full set of DMM Wallnuts with double #2 & #3. I also bring a set of micro offsets but rarely carry them while climbing. I would use this combination for anything in new England.

I don't find an offset to be useful unless it is a micro nut.

strandman:
WC Rocks  and at some point HB Offsets will get you geared on almost any thin stuff

I don't like the BD curve on the side..it's silly
