Lightweight is just the beginning.
Metolius designed its Ultralight Power Cam to give you bomber trad gear that doesn't weigh you down. Its lightweight appeal is due to the Direct Axle Technology, which places each lobe as close to one another as possible. This technology also helps you set each cam in tricky, shallow, and narrow placements with ease. Metolius made each piece with four wide lobes that increase its 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 Monster sling for easier identification on the wall, and the Range Finder on sizes 2 - 8 let you know if whether you're placement is at the most minimum or maximum range available on the cam.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I haven't used this cam extensively but after only a couple of uses I am very impressed. The feel of the cam is a nice even pull that snaps back well when released. The double stem design helps you easily get a nice consistent placement every time and the "range finder" color spectrum helps prevent over or under camming. Overall a very lightweight and functional. I would highly recommend these cams to others.
