Do you mean Tricams or spring-loaded camming devices?

Likely the Tri-Cams that are larger than 3.5
Instead of being forgings, they are assemblies of riveted heavy gauge sheet metal.

"Inappropriate" probably because of the size.

he's pretty much running the same thread here and looks like it started as a thread of him trying to buy some tri's for SE climbing and another poster told him anything bigger than a non forged tri is inappropriate, so he's trying to figure out what that means....

Of course they're inappropriate, naughty little buggers...sticking their pointy parts where they don't belong...they're basically the social pariahs of climbing gear. For some strange reason they always seem to end up racked on their own gear loop. Totally inappropriate.
