I'm thinking about picking up a set of these. Can anyone share their experience with them? And do their sizing correspond to the stopper sizes. Eg #3 micro is same size (yet narrower and tapered) as the #3 stopper? Hope that makes sense. Thanks in advance.

They work ok but I find the HB offsets work better. I have many of both and always reach for HB's first.

I've never owned micros but have read the HB and DMMs are the best. Is it the angled of offset or the sizing that doesn't work?

yep. DMM peanuts and their newer offset nuts made from the old HB molds are incredible.

Not sure where you were looking to get them, but they recently dropped in price on REI's site:

I have a set of peanuts and yes I was looking at the REI deal ($8.76) so wonder about the sizing compared to the peanuts. I have the smallest peanuts so what sizes are smaller than those. And is it the the taper that makes them not as good as DMM? Thanks everyone.

to my knowledge the small set of peanuts are the same sizing as the dmm offsets, the offsets are just tapered more drastically. to be honest, i have since sold my peanuts so i cannot guarantee the size comparison but i know its damn close. to go and smaller than the peanuts i had to buy the BD rp's.
