      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!

Trango Flex Cams, change in smaller sizes

Recommended Posts

Just got the latest Shoreline catalog in the mail. I noticed that the "redesigned" Trango cams in the smallest 5 sizes are now advertised with "an innovative, direct-offset cam design". They look just like the Splitter units which have been littering ebay for months now. I'm wondering if Trango bought Spitter out.

Shoreline-Trango

 

It appears that Trango has redesigned the flexcam (I like the old ones , especially in the mid to small sizes) so that the cams on smaller sizes are in direct opposition to each other. This is similar to the Splitter Gear cams, however these still have four cams which should keep them stable and allow for shallow placements. (I think Splitter Gear actually also had/has a four cam unit too).

 

I spoke with someone in the "industry" that seemed optimistic that these would be effective and he said that they would be significantly stronger in the passive position. Don't quote me on that though. cantfocus.gif

 

I am curious by not optimistic. They apparently aren't actually in stock right now. Further, they have gone up $5.00 per cam.

 

I really like the old flex cams and felt that at $39.95 they were the best retail priced cam out there (read: value). frown.gif Maybe the old ones will go on sale? thumbs_up.gif
