      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I meant full strength stops. The scroll pins used in old style cams have several design flaws. In my garage I have a museum of retired cams. I have a couple of Clog Cams and think they are a good deal for the dollar.

BD #.5, #2...Rock Empire yellow...Wild Country #4...My cams range from Forged Friends to Aliens to DMM to Trango...my rule though is use passive pro unless I'm sketched or a cam is just a better placement. There is nothing more reassuring than a solidly placed #9 stopper. smirk.gif

 

Tri-cam lovers, I have a #2 and after learning how to place it, I do love it. I want to get one more, which size do you use the most?

my preference is for BD's on the .5-3.5 and metolius(TCU's) and aliens on the smaller side...i have taken a few pretty big whips on the blue TCU and it is bomber... but i think with any cam, if you lpace it right it will hold, but the main difference is how easy they are to place....BD are easiest ( i think) because they have a larger range (even if they give up some power they are still more than adequate) so i use those, but i like the TCU's on the smaller side because they have a smaller profile, but still have a larger surface area(good for awkward placements and shallow ones as well)... just my 2 cents... gotta eeeenjoy the $$$ aspect of trad... grin.gif
