      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!

TrangoFlexcams crap or a good deal?

Recommended Posts

The price is great and the features seem good, but has anyone used these?

 

I know the range is less than some others but how much of a difference is it on the rock? Anybody had difficulty finding the right size?

Have a set of Trango's and like them a lot. Real big sizes are a bit narrow, but otherwise quality is great and ease of use fine. Like them more than some of my camalots.

The cam part of my rack is now a mix of Camalots, tcus, and Tango cams. The Camalots are there because they work really well (but are spendy) and if I hadn't invested in them before the Tango gear, I'd have more Trango cams (great price performers...true of much of Trango's gear) [chubit] .

I've had a double set of trango dual stem cams for about 8 years or so. I like them a lot. Easy to extricate, easy to place, don't walk, fairly light. The price was my primary motivation. I always thought the expansion range was great, barely less than a #3 camalot when you actually compare them side to side.

 

good value.

 

Of course, some of my partners hate using me rack b/c of them. fuck 'em.

So 4-10 days go past and here is my report:

 

Bitches:

 

-The two smallest sizes I ordered are a little smaller than I would have expected from the measurements posted on line.

 

-The smallest cam's range seems a little minimal, although I haven't placed it yet.

 

-The heads are wide on both, meaning a little less manueverable in tight spots.

 

-Not as badass as Aliens.

 

-Your Momma.

 

Ho's:

 

-Construction was bomber.

 

-The looped cable stems are better than those metal things on Camalots.

 

-The action is smooth for a cheap cam.

 

-They are a lot better than anything else for $40.

 

-Your girlfriend.
