Putting wires on old BD hexes

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about replacing the old cords on my BD hexes with some wires (like the new ones). Of course, immediately I start thinking about things i could screw up e.g. is there a particular wire/swage that should be used?, etc. Anyone ever do this, think about doing this, etc? Does this raise any red flags? (Danger Will Robinson!)

On a couple occasions I watched the wire lever the hex out of a placement, then the whole contraption slid down and hit me in the balls. So I replaced the wires with spectra and stopped climbing with people who place hexes as the first piece on a pitch.
