    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.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    So I just climbed a little climb called Long John Wall this last weekend. A week before that I had just bought my new SuperCam. Oh, how glad I am that I had it on me during the third pitch. It was a battle. I had a bigger than my fist (sideways) size crack that stretched up about 9 feet above me (the crux) and my last piece was probably 6 feet below me. Sketched, I down climbed, looked on my rack, saw my Metolius #8 Master cam, knew that wouldn't fit, then laid my eyes upon my brand new Supercam. I quickly took it off my sling and placed it high above me. This boosted my confidence and with one more walk of the cam mid way up the crack I had onsighted the hardest 5.8+ up to date. Thanks to the Lord, Backcountry and Metolius for a SuperDay with my SuperCam. Cheers!

    I really like this cam, the wide lobes and quality construction make it feel really bomber, even more so than a BD 4! it is is more like a tipped out 3 to a biggish 4, not a 2,3 and 4 like Grant said. It is also really hard to get stuck, because the different sized lobes walk at different rates, so the bigger set of lobes rotate and hit the opposite side of the crack, and the smaller lobes can then retract more and you can get it out! Kinda confusing, but I'll include a picture to illustrate my point. This means you can utilize much more of it's range than a BD 4!(I see it as the metolius version of a 4) My main gripe is that it is heavy compared to metolius's other cams, which is there main selling point in my opinion. It is only an oz heavier than a BD 4 but has a much greater range, but compared to the usual 2-3oz wieght savings of metolius cams it could be improved upon. I definitely wouldn't get the s, because the wide head/lobes would make it a pain in the butt for wierd, shallow placements, the M could be good, but the L is definitely worth getting because large cracks are usually not shallow and weird, so the wide lobes and head make it stable and not prone to walking.

    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.

      If considering this product, this is a great read.

      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.
