The Rockcentric's success can be attributed to the combination of: curved sides seating much more effectively than the flat sided nuts, the all-around ease of placement or removal and the light weight compared to the original Hex.
As people replaced these old Hexes on their racks, they noticed the other big plus point for the Rockcentric was it's versatility, in that one nut can provide four placement modes. And as of two of these were 'camming style placements', they made an effective starter tool for those who couldn't afford or weren't confident using cams. As well as this, the fact that Rockcentrics were on pre-sewn 12mm Dynnema meant confidence in their rating of 12kn compared to threading up Hexes with rope of indeterminable strength.
This Dyneema also meant flexibility, it would go over edges better and generally didn't need lengthening. This allowed a single krab to be used rather than a QD reducing the overall weight of the climber's rack.
Anodised for 2005 there isn't really a rack which Rockcentrics don't suit, from the eager beginner, to the gnarliest winter freak, to the trad climber wanting to push the boat out with less weight on the their rack.
