Are the gold and blue (size 4 and 5) dmm dragons assured to be free of the issues that forced the recall back in February 2011? From the pic it looks like the blue one has a turned axle boss, which was the reason for the recall.

Thanks for any insight you may have. - Garrick
Good catch Garrick! The images are definitely of the turned axle bosses, but my guess is that Backcountry just never updated the image. Climbing companies take this stuff very seriously (as they should) and I highly, highly doubt that Backcountry would sell recalled cams. Again though, you never can be too safe!
Also, Ryan Grimm (see the picture below) has a set, and from the picture you can tell that the cams have the hot forged axle boss, so assuming he bought them from Backcountry..
these dragons have the hot forged axle boss. maybe i was overly hesitant on getting these, of course no company like backcountry.com would sell recalled climbing gear. Thanks for the reassurance Thomas!
