      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!

Interesting proposition. But when you say "forged" do you really mean cast aluminum shank as opposed to wired shank?

What possible reason could you have for such an offer? Forged is Strom Thurmon while flexible is John Sherman.

It's like a harley or gold wing....

 

After using my bud's forged deal and also having 3 forged friends myself I would say I prefer the older style WC.

 

I traded NOtgotmoney my camalot(weighalot) for his forged friend and now he wants to trade back....

What the hell? Have y'all ever whipped on a horizontally placed forged? I have not and that's why I'm still around.

IF I think the route requires it I'll bring otherwise... PLus tri cams are good and cheap.

 

I cant count too many times when I needed a cam that large in a horizontal...........

 

I've yet to need one. That's all.

No (non fixed) Tri Cam has ever held a fall. If you think this is not so you're wrong.

And this whole time I thought Tri Cams sucked, when it's really a lack of huevos on my part. I'll remember to breathe deeply as I place that next Tri Cam into the placement that "nothing else will fit in".

If that makes you feel better. I'm not getting on some "I am tough" kick at all. Just stating my thoughts.

 

If you disagree good for you. Make some comments and arguments and whatever. I'm not necessarily going to argue against them with prejudice.

 

Carry your camalot and I will carry my friends. Is one better than the other if they both work? No.

While doing my homework on Vicuna Beach I came across the hugest recommended ticklist I've ever seen. Check it out:http://bivouac.com/UsrPg.asp?UsrId=30

Tri cams work. So do heavy ass weighalots aka camalots.

 

Many times a different brand will work in the same place.

 

It's like being a dude that fixes up a honda civic with racing pipes thiking he is better off than somebody in a turbo audi. Who cares?
