Description

Almost twice the range of conventional cams.

When it comes to blind placements, you should use the Metolius Super Cam because it gives almost twice the range of conventional cams so you have a better chance at getting it to fit properly. This giant range is due to the asymmetric design that places larger lobes on one side and smaller ones on the other. To make up for the difference in sizes, the designers at Metolius went through meticulous work to ensure that the trigger pulls each lobe precisely and equally through each range. Metolius made each piece with four wide lobes that increase grip on the rock as opposed to conventional four-lobed designs, and each lobe has a cam stop that helps it act passively like a stopper. CNC machined means each cam gives better precision so you don't fumble around when you're placing it. The U-shaped double stem is very durable, and yet remains highly flexible for better control when you're placing it or your second is cleaning it. Each cam comes with a color-coded sling for easier identification on the wall, and the Range Finder lets you know whether you're placement is at the most minimum or maximum range available on the cam.

#2,#3,#4 BD Camalot in one package (L).

How could you go wrong? The small, medium, and large super cams cover such a wide variety of sizes that its hard not to bring along. The Super Cam's placement range is the same as the meatiest Black Diamond cams. Not only does this give you a versatile piece but can cut down on weight. For example the large super cam is 11 ounces, this is half the weight of the #2, #3, and #4 combined (which the large super cam accommodates all three cam ranges) . Not to say that it should replace these specific sizes, but rather augment them. I will look forward to sporting this on my rack.

Other cool thing that is not in that article is you can get a nut tool and grab the trigger bar to pull it out if it ends up deeper in the crack than you thought. With the other style triggers you would need two nut tools or have to get a finger in there.

Keep your nuts in order! Good idea, Bill!
