Review by marks on Mar. 31, 2007
They are stable and rarely walk.
Obviously the stems are not as flexable as a single stem. The heads are wider than Black Diamond C3s.
For the small sizes I would have a Look at Black Diamond C3s if you can afford them.

lightweight, compact. The trigger action always feels accurate and smooth. If I'm on a true finger crack, I know to reach for the yellow #2 and plug it in.
I find it more difficult to sink these deeply into cracks compared to aliens or bd's

Review by evanwish on Mar. 30, 2010
-they feel very secure and bomber in good placements.
-cam angle provides extra pressure on the rock (more likely to hold)
-Cheaper than C3's
-U-stem doesn't always work in vertical cracks with irregularities.
-cam angle *slightly* reduces range. Not much though

-everybody has their opinions on these vs. C3. you've just got to try both and decide for yourself (i like c3's)

Great design, light, strong - these baby's rock. the three lobe design lets them pivot more than walk... dual cable design lets you reach the trigger with a nut tool and pull.
Range finder isn't all that useful.

Review by NoCarsGo on Mar. 25, 2009
These are the best small cams available. They are super light and they don't walk. Range finder feature is good for teaching girlfriends how to place gear. An added bonus down the road is that Metolius replaces slings and trigger wires for next to nothing.

solid cam. easy to place. I supplement my rack of flexible stems with these. Great vertically oriented cracks.
most often, i find that i don't need the stiff stem

Review by MikePB on Feb. 27, 2011
Inexpensive. Very small. stable.
Not as flexible as others
Get Master Cams instead, they are more flexible.

Review by pullzilla on Mar. 15, 2011
small heads great range and holding power, double stem is excellent. although the new master cam has smaller heads still than some sizes.
lacks doubled sling, has a nasty habit of walking in some placements.

Small and stable, stronger springs then the smaller bd's
U-stem can be funky in some situations
