Dragon 2 Cam

DMM's Dragon 2 Cam is fiercer, stronger, and grippier than ever before. Its biggest update for the new model year is without a doubt the teeth, which are redesigned to net more friction on any rock. DMM studied the slipperiest rocks in order to determine the best grip, and the results are the Dragon 2's sharper teeth, increased surface area, and a raw Alu finish. The teeth's surface area tapers off right at the sweet spot, helping you better identify the best placement in any given crack.

Other updates to the Dragon 2 Cam include improved torsional rigidity, better ergonomics, and of course, a lower weight. Better torsional rigidity means the stem is less flexible for more security while you're placing it in horizontals. The new thumb press helps your second clean easier, and the extendable Dynatec sling sheds weight without decreasing strength. DMM kept the single stem and double axle design for a perfect passive placement.

Very nice!

I've used it several times

I wanted to add to Alyssa’s review. I agree loves are bomber on these. I have had a much better experience than she has suggested. Here is why. Sling length. Total length lobe to end of sling (see excellent reference pic from Alyssa) is actually quite a bit longer than the BD but not much longer than the WC. This is nice. I feel that the biggest benefit is the length of the sling itself (with short stem). Put all of these cams in a crack and move the carabiner around and up and down and you’ll see the DMM is lest likely to walk because the sling is a buffer from the climbers movements. On a lot of climbs, the extended sling is all I need. On others, I still need an alpine draw. I don’t think any cam will ever be able to compensate for wandering routes, but those with slight deviations are handled quite nicely! Finger shredding/retrieval. In the nice picture A shared, you can see the that the distance from lobes to trigger is almost identical across the 3 brands shown. So, if these were all in I’d tical placements, the trigger would be the same depth across the 3 the trigger is no harder to reach. HoWEVER, the short stem (praised for its stability in my first paragraph) can lead to making it a little harder to retrieve because to squeeze the trigger your palm or thumb have to push the stem. With the other two brands, you can sometimes use the outside of the thumb loop to get your leverage (thus keeping your hand a little more stretched out…?) Anyway I quite like these cams. And if you really want the absolute best, go get some DMM offset nuts. Don’t look at anything else. Buy them, try them, love them.

Great lobes, but the rest needs work

I've used it several times

I have the red Dragon and I love almost everything about it. When it is placed, I feel super good about it. The lobes are SO nice I have no worries about it walking or sliding around. God they?re so perfect and sticky. Makes me drool. (See photo of lobe comparison between WC friends, DMM dragons, and BD C4s). My issue with these comes more as a follower. They?°re hard to clean. The stem is small and the trigger can be hard to reach before you scrape up your fingers trying to retract it. I was out yesterday with a friend who has a whole double rack of DMM Dragons, and I was missing my Wild Country Friends and BD C4s. Even my Metolius cams. They?re just easier to clean, to be honest. My other issue is the extendable slings. What I thought was a main selling point ended up being an annoyance. You can only extend it from one side, or it?°°ll get caught and not extend all the way. The sewn part of the sling just will not pass through the stem. So when I?m pumped and trying to extend the sling, I have to fiddle with it for longer than it would take to just put in a separate sling. Also, retracting the sling as a follower is annoying. I am posting a photo of the length of the DMM sling as compared to the BD C4s and the Wild Country Friends. In my opinion, if you need to extend the placement, 3 inches doesn’t substitute the need for a QuickDraw or 60cm sling. You?ll often find yourself still needing a sling even after extending it. All in all, I think these have their place. If you are climbing splitter sandstone cracks or slippery limestone, these would be a great choice. The machined lobes are literally to die for and unlike any other cam I have used. But the stem length and extendable sling becomes a turn off, especially if you mainly climb on granite (like I do).
