review Break Testing Climbing Cams

Yea, it is a shame that they tapered the crack so far down.  It doesn't look like any of those cams would have been able to be "placed" through the constriction they pulled them through.  So basically you are testing it as a nut placement.  I guess it is interesting to see what breaks first on the cams.....lobes, sling, or wire.  But I would be more interested in the actual holding power of the cam on ideal placements.  Like what was the dynamometer showing when the cams were slipping before they became overcammed in the constriction?
