    All the small things.

    The Metolius Ultralight TCU Package includes five mini cams that fit in small cracks found on most trad climbing routes. These TCUs crave tiny fissures, horizontal pin scars, and pinky-sized finger cracks. Direct Axle Technology (DAT) helps these Ultralight beauties live up to their name, weighing around 10 ounces together. DAT also allows for trickier placements in shallower sections, and the wider lobes work with the optimized cam angle to provide a better grip in softer rock such as sandstone and volcanic tuff. 

    Metolius equipped the bigger TCUs with a range finder to help beginners see the difference between a well-placed cam versus a tipped-out cam. Machine cam stops let these TCUs double as stoppers when placed passively, and the Monster Sling ensures long-lasting durability for many seasons of sending.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    I see that these have cables and look like they would be flexible, but have never used them. Are they good for horizontal placements like the X4's?

    Ben is correct .. TCUs are not the best for horizontal cracks but they will generally hold a fall just fine with some deformation to the cables. TCUs are smaller, narrower head, and lighter than the other Met cams. Techically with 3 lobes there is less contact surface area. Often TCUs place well in pockets where other cams will not fit.
