and partnerwrote a review of Metolius Ultralight Power Cam on June 4, 2007
light, impeccably made, excellent workmanship/strength EXCEPT- as gear becomes more specialized, so must the user. Since these have a changing cam angle, they tend to be awful in flared pockets at the green/smallest end of the retraction zone, and as they wear in the green zone, become closer to a zero degree cam angle, which is useless. I use the orange zone to near red zone the most... and on the midrange sizes, they retract until the cam tips touch the opposite crack walls, and get stuck. Yuck.
