Updated for 2001--a smaller cam angle for greater outward force plus a larger cam surface for greater friction create greater holding power

Durable, flexible, stainless-steel cable body with long-wearing TeflonĀ® trigger slides are lightweight, strong and allow easy placement
Split-wire triggers with knurled trigger bars allow you to use one, two or three fingers--or even gloved hands
Thick cams of super-durable 7075-T6 aluminum feature logarithmic spiral for increased holding power throughout the cam's active range
Radiused teeth increase durability and holding power
Bar-tacked nylon slings are color-coded for quick, easy identification
Individual cam sizes generously overlap one another to insure the right size can be found

These cams work great for smaller cracks. I prefer to use power cams up to size 6 (green) and then use Camalots for larger sizes. Power cams don't walk as much as other cams seem to and cover a lot of rock surface.

They upgraded these full range cams with a "Range Finder" system (color coded heads), great for new leaders. Had all my gear stolen in Vegas and got a full set of these. I had the choice between this and the Black Diamond Camalots and prefer these triggers more.



They have a smaller cam angle for greater outward force yet a larger cam surface for better friction.



As of June, 2005, they are on sale at REIOutlet.com
