Maybe I am wrong.... but 90+% of stuck cams I have seen have not been perfectly placed cams that just happen to be out of reach like the demo on their website shows. Most cams that are stuck are overcammed and have other issues.


^^^ +1. Most cams I've had to struggle with are because they are overcammed with minimal left to pull on.

I can't remember if I ever had issues with a cam that was too deep, so that probably means 0-1 times.

Maybe IC if a cam walked into a deep parallel, but lot not for $117.

The cam extractor extractor is now available for only $750, made in the USA from aircraft grade titanium and commercial grade diamonds for durability and light weight.

Pays for itself in one weekend at the creek - in the first half of the morning, you'll rescue enough cam extractors to pay for your cam extractor extractor, gas and food, gym membership, car payment and mortgage.

I can't recall the pitch, but somewhere in the first third of The Nose, there was a pitch where I saw somewhere between a half a dozen and a dozen cams that had been lost deep in the crack. It looked as if they were too small and had just been dropped in there. At least one or two of them were not even oriented to the crack, they were oriented the other way.

wham bam hand jam. Wrapping up the final moves of ...
lets just call a spade a spade and a stick-clip a stick-clip. i am just wondering why they aren't stick clip lengths? why not make this unit extend to 12-18 feet?

also, what is the smallest cam it can accomodate? looks like the trigger hooks are wider than a finger crack. how would this thing do with anything other than a C4? like a C3 or an alien?

But I don't see this as a total loss. They could apply the technology to other inventions. Say,.. an Elenor extractor? Daryl Allan

the best trick that i use is to pre rigg the cam on black diamond c4 there are to small holes on each side of the trigger you can knot a wire and loop through other hole so you basically extend he trigger by pulling a long looped wire in stead. works awsome especially when pumped jeff frame

I really have no clue what the dude above me is writing sorry... but I think the best suggestion I read on here was the integration into a stick clip so that you could place your first cam before you leave the deck in some situation. Morgan Patterson
