I use the Big Bro's and use them in spots where I hanging around a while sucks (since I don't have Valley of the Giant cams (Andrew do you and your "friends" want to come out here, a frriend just put up a nice overhanging OW).

I mainly use them on stuff where the OW is really long or harder. Most people I know (along with myself)just run it out if the OW section is less then 30ft long and less then hard 5.10/5.11a (but the grade is subjective depending on how comfortable you are on OW and where the fall would put you although on this one the first 20-25ft is .10a and you can sling the stuck rocks most of us just forget about it and just go for it http://www.summitpost.org/images/original/335297.JPG.
