New Metolius Supercams

Anyone seen these new cams yet? I'm guessing probably not unless you've seen em at a trade show or something. Sounds like they have only just been released and not in all sizes yet. I don't even know if they have an Aus distributor?

They have an asymetrical design (different size cam lobes on each side) that gives them a bigger range for the same number of parts as 'standard' cams. Other claims are better stability, greater holding power. Plus a traffic light system that shows if you've got the right size cam for a given placement. Worth a look I reckon.

i thought these had been in oz for a little while? We reviewed them in the latest CRUX. I think Mountain Designs are the stockists...

these have been at the mountain shop for ages, they look OK, maybe a bit clunky.

You know wytiee , sometimes I still think you're trolling when you post on these climbing forums but sadly it's not true. : (

But you are still the only climber, I know of, who has written a trip report on going to the gym and that is pure gold!

Or maybe a Ukranian certificate of conformity . . .

Hey I'm all for the old Eastern Bloc - mine are about 15 years old now and still going strong . . .
I just don't necessarily trust the Western Capitalist Pigs so the BD label just didn't cut it . . .

I did a bit of searching and couldn't find it either, though I do remember reading something similar to what ww describes.

They just look plain ugly.

They look good, but at 12mm for the smallest one they don't really compete with either C3 or Aliens.
I would think that they are fairly light too, as there isn't a lot to them, and pretty narrow as well.
I would like to trial these before spending the cash (those prices are US$), but as I said they look sound.
