I did not buy them through Ebay I have been trying to be patiant but it has gotten rediculous. I posted this in hope that if some one is debaiting like I was they will just go buy some thing local. Touch it before you buy it. PS I have seen there link cams tested by climbers but never any where else. I would never climb on those by just hear say testing. I would have to test them my self. I probibly would have but I wanted my money asap so I could get some other gear. Jokes on me.

Never buy these. I got a set of 5 links cams. On arrival 4 out of the 5 products were visably faulty- the stem wires were splayed and untwisted. I sent them back tracked and they arrived 4th november. I still have received no refund and they just keep ignoring my e-mails.
Aviod them at all costs!!!!!

Not a hardcore climber here, but I bought a zipline trolley from gear4rocks because it was cheap. My 6 and 8 year old daughters used it for a couple weeks and then one of the bearings went bad. I asked if they would like a video and they said yes. I sent them a video of me rotating the bearing with it wobbling all over the place. They said they would replace it if I would ship it back to the Ukrain. My advice - pay a little more for a trusted name from a vendor in the States.

Thunderbolt Peak in the Palisades

I am a gear junkie and I watch the MP classifieds like a hawk. I have been able to pick up mastercams almost new for $35 shipped, aliens for $35, and metolius quadcams for $25. It blows my mind that people would buy from half way across the world when there is so much used gear here. We have so many resources for us to procure cheap cams; ebay, craigslist, and forum classifieds.
Why play around with unknown gear when we have these options?

A UIAA rated fall is based on around 176 lbs falling 16 feet onto 8 feet of rope (can you say FACTOR 2?). Unless you are taking factor 2 falls on these turds please dont claim to be "testing" them. A long fall doesnt mean a factor 2 fall. Example- A climber is 25ft above his last piece, with 100 ft of rope out, and falls for a total of a 50 ft screamer. 50 ft/100 ft= fall factor of .5. Now if the same climber leaves the belay and after climbing 10 ft falls with no gear in, for a fall of 20 ft, the resulting 20/10 = fall factor 2. the latter example will put MUCH more force on all the gear in the system (incliding the belayer).
To the OP-
Bummer man, sorry to hear you have apparently been ripped. Climb safe out there, and sending those things back was probably a good step towards that.

Your incredible poor grammar and sentence structure makes me very skeptical of this account being run by gear4rocks.
