I and all of my current and past partners, have owned and extensively used the Original two generation <C> Camolots and first generation BD U Stems with plenty of longass 20-40 foot whips and have no regrets or failures.
Also, this test you speak of, utilizes a well used .75 CAMALOT that god ONLY knows it's life history, where it has been, how many falls it has taken etc. This is not a NEW CAM.
Look closely at the extensive wear/worn marks on the stems of this "failed" .75
Had this been a brand new product, different story.
Thus, MOOT & BS TEST and CLAIM!http://www.mountainproject.com/v/c4-wit ... /107215044
