To decide which nipple is best, you must weigh up the available information:* Sapim makes nipples in nickel plated brass and in aluminium. * All nipples are forged. * Arguments in favour of a brass nipple are price and rigidity.* The strength/weight ratio is the principal argument for a 7075 alloy nipples. * It is superior to all other makes. * If a coloured anodized alloy nipple is selected it will guard against corrosion as well as look special.Hexagonal head nickel plated brass nipples allow a higher torque without damaging the four spans of the nipple. Because truing is done from the head side that has a larger diameter. It can take more pressure.
