Light, solid, loud

I've mostly placed these in basalt and find them to have a very positive camming action. They set solidly with a tug (not worried about the rope knocking them loose at all) and are definitely confidence inspiring. I haven't found any placements yet that have seemed a little too big for one, but a little too small for the next size up, so it looks like they nailed the overlap. They're totally loud, but hey, they're big hexes, whaddaya expect? The sling extends pretty easily and saves on draws (it can take a little longer for seconds to rerack them with the sling extended, but if that's a deal breaker for you just leave the sling doubled and use a draw). Another really cool feature: the sizes line up really closely with the equivalently colored Camalot C4's (.75-3). Gotta love standardized colors.
