Daniel Goodmanwrote a review of Wild Country Friend Camming Device on October 18, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I finally had a chance to get the 0.5, 0.75, and 1 out the other day and put them to use. I have a mixed set up of cams that I tend to use from different companies so I was excited to give these a shot and they did not disappoint.
First, the cams feel extremely light and are in fact lighter than the Camalot C4s if only by a little. A little change in weight can go a long with with a double rack and a full day of climbing ahead of you.
Secondly, the action on the trigger is the best of any cam that I have used including, C3s, C4s, X4s, Totems, and Metolius cams. For me, that means when I'm redlining at the crux and need to place a piece, it is that much easier to get a solid placement.
Finally, as others have stated, they place incredibly well and remove easily.
These are all the things and more that you could ever want from a cam and I will be buying Friends first when it comes time to pick up some more cams.
Feel free to reach out directly to me with questions on these cams or any others, I'd love to chat!
