Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I started my rack with Camalots years ago and keep coming back. In most ranges they are a superb pieces, and the massive range of the whole set means you can keep one cam type from splitters to off-widths cracks. I have been recently impressed though by the updated Master cams which appear in superior in many ways, but I simply won't be replacing all the BD's because of it. In sized larger than 4, check out the Technical Friends instead. They are wider and have better stability.
Black Diamond has major competition these days and needs to reinvent these (and I don't mean by charging outrageous prices for the UL's)

Iv'e owned three sets now and will probably purchase again. I am hard on gear and these have stood the test of time. They are thick and large to pack compared to others(ex. glidelite). Not so easy to pocket to keep glue warm. I only have touched up glue on one pair which was used for 3 seasons, more due to junk build up than loosing tack. I've used partner's skins and none have seemed to hold as well on the uphill.
