The main differences are the fit (Otaki for women is narrower) and the rubber used for the sole. Men's version is made with using Vibram XS Edge rubber and Otaki women's version with Vibram XS Grip, which provide lighter climbers better stickiness and traction.

DMM brass offsets are an improved version of the old HB offsets which DMM bought the production rights too when HB closed down. RP's are made by Roland Pauligk in Australia but I don't know if they're still in production. The acronym RP now may refer to micro nuts because of their wide spread popularity. The best is to pair the DMM brass offsets with IMP's or another brand for more versatility and a greater choice of placements. Be aware the that for free climbing the small sizes are likely to pull out or break the placement or even fail due to their low strength rating.

Grigri 2... Lots of pros and cons especially when considering an auto blocking device but its popularity make it the ideal choice. It's reliable, easy to use, has been in production since 1991 (original grigri) and has been used by an incredibly large amount climbers in a variety of different conditions.

You'll be surprised at what a descent cobbler can do (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2C8biG0na54). Depending on how you use your feet the greatest area of wear will be on the tip of your big toe where the sole meets the rand. As you wear down the sole you will expose more of the rand below it, you may also notice a hole forming below your big toe, as soon as you notice it reaches a point where you feel you're starting to wear into the rand it's time to resole the shoe....
