Iím saddened to hear of this, and would have thought the percentage of gym climbers taking on the great outdoor challenges would have been an expanding market for gear manufacturers.

Their karabiners were a bit heavy but filled a price-point niche for many I guess. Personally I like their Link Cams, and have never had a problem with any of them ever becoming stuck.
The only potential issue Iíve noticed with the largest size of them is that they can tend to Ďrollí in some flare type placements if not placed carefully with that possibility in mind. It doesnít seem to be an issue with the smaller sizes.

Link cams are an excellent piece of kit in my opinion and the two larger sizes that I carry on my rack I generally try not to use during pitches, due husbanding them for belay construction due to their versatility.
I'm not a great fan of the smaller sizes because I use much lighter tri-cam nuts for pro in those situations.

I guess those on my rack just went up in value due to now becoming collectors items!
Heh, heh, heh.
