Review by rmcgibbo on Aug. 03, 2008
I have the two smallest sizes (0 and .5), so granted I'm only speaking about those:

Anodization is great! Lots better than Metolius TCUs. Unfortunately that's the only positive I've got.
In these sizes, the head width is really a problem - three cam units (DMM makes 'em, and so do lots of other brands) are vastly superior.

Frankly I think the doubled slings are a little gimicky too. They really don't extend that much more - I'm still going to use a sling.
For the small sizes, I'd recommend Metolius TCUs, BD C3s, or DMM 3CUs over these.

these cams handle exceptionally well. grab them when you're gripped in almost any way possible and they still place with ease. having to reach for my camalots or mastercams in sketchy situations requires more care on the part of my fingers to retract the trigger. one finger's all that's needed to retract the lobes on a 4CU. nice independent lobe play for less-than-perfect placements, light weight, awesome color-coding, and secure placements. i have #1 - 4 and have been happy with all aspects. doubled sling is a very nice addition - not gimmicky.
a little bit wider heads than some other brands in similar sizes. many sizes (i.e., 1, 1.25, 1.5, etc...) means more specific crack-cam matching required at times, but once you know the cams it makes for secure, confidence-inspiring placements.

Durable, Easy to place.
Wide head, so small placements are harder.

light, durable, steady
check placements - these will walk if you're not careful.
