Cypher Huevos are a great option for climbers looking for a good price on dependable nuts (formerly known as ABC Huevos). Huevos are identical to Omega Pacific Wedgies — Omega Pacific makes them for Cypher. They are identical size-to-size and they also share the same color scheme for their anodized heads. Like Wedgies, Huevos are closely similar to Black Diamond Stoppers. Their classic curved design offers good all-around performance when fitting into bottlenecks and parallel cracks. However, their performance is rather average in flares and pin scars. Two features that all climbers and especially beginners will enjoy are Huevos' simple design that makes for easier placement assessment and the fact that they are relatively easy to remove. Among all the nuts we reviewed, Huevos are the best priced either when sold individually or as a set.
Huevos are slightly better priced as a set than Omega Pacific Wedgies, although a Wedgies full set for $95 comes with a Caranut tool ($2 savings on the nut tool). Huevos get OutdoorGearLab's Best Buy award because they are slightly easier to clean than BD Stoppers and are $30 less expensive. For climbers on a tight budget, these are good, dependable nuts that fit the more typical bottleneck cracks very well. They are dependable nuts that we loved in the smaller sizes and thought were average in middle to larger sizes.
