This is a dumb poll. No one cares about your nuts. 1

I don't think stacked nuts are inherently bad, although I don't know that I'd go so far as to say "bomber". (Where's the "A lot better than nothing" option?)

The two biggest problems with stacked nuts are that firstly there's a lot more ways to stuff them up, and secondly you wouldn't want to use them as a runner due to the risk of unexpected movement loosening the stack. But a nice static belay should be fine as a secondary piece.

I've used them for aid, and I'd be surprised if I hadn't used them a time or two on a belay in the early pre-cam days when my rack was a *lot* smaller.
