Browsing around for something else I noticed that there's an offset version of the X4:

My partner did exactly the same thing to one of my master cams Brendan. It was her very first placement, on her first time climbing with the aids. Fortunately, Metolius, through climbing anchors.com.au, replaced it. Which I was very impressed by.

So I have one question regarding these... The regular X4s use two different axle configurations across the size range. What do they do for the offset size that bridges that transition? Double axle on one side and stacked axle on the other?

Couldn't they have the same axel with different sized lobes - or have I just revealed my nuptyness in all things physics and engineering?

You could look at the pictures on the link. Stacked in the X4s is on .1,.2 and .3 with double on the rest right? So the transition offset is .3/.4. Here's one of the pics of that size from the link I posted:


Looks like it's a stacked axle on both sides. The .4/.5 is dual axle:

The .4 X4 uses a dual axle, the .3 uses a single stacked axle. The .3/.4 uses a stacked axle. This means they have both a dual axle and stacked axle version of the .4 lobes.
