GEAR4ROCKS is no more? I should have bought their plastic nuts when I had the chance!

I had been aware of Gear4Rocks (their gear was STANDART approved!) for quite a few years. Their plastic nuts (some pics here: google.ca/search?q=gear4roc…;biw=1024&bih=638&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwjHt9aQrOHQAhVD42MKHSzWBMgQ_AUIBigB) intrigued me, and I figured I buy a set for the novelty factor.

I procrastinated for years and years until I finally decided to pull the trigger today.

Only...

Gear4Rocks doesn't seem to exist anymore...

A bit of google lead me here:

krok.biz/en/skalnoe-snaryaz…

I see a lot of stuff that Gear4Rocks was making and selling on this website.

I should probably jump on this opportunity to get a set of plastic nuts before they are gone for good!

Perhaps the owners all took a dirt nap on their own gear?

I once read an interesting article about someone who pull tested some of their gear and it held up. That being said, this looks whole operation looks suspect, I don't think it's possible to build a quality cam for $9 or a functioning ice screw for $8.

I have two sets of those plastic nuts. Got them one Christmas as a "starter kit" from the older brother :)
