haven't read through the whole post, but if they make a size that is perfectly between blue and green alien, i'll probably buy 6 of them. i think the biggest mistake that all of the small cam manufacturers are making is that they the sizes are all too similar.

i am finding a gap between my 0.2 microcamalot (roughly a blue alien) and the 0.3 C4..

oh and like Jake said above, i have the five WC Fr sizes 1-2 (including half and quarter sizes) and they compliment the BDs well from 0.4-1.

Depending on the kind of rock you climb, offset/hybrid cams can be great for in-between sizes. Unless it's perfect sandstone splitters all the time, offsets seem to fit just as good as often as a regular cam in the smaller sizes (up to 0.5 C4 or so).

Played with them at OR. Head width is like a C4 with a lobe shaved off which seems close to C3 head width. Nice bit didn't make me want to sell my master cams.

Does anyone knows when these cams are actually going to be available for purchase?

Late March, Early April based on what I've heard from the folks at BD.

Been a while since that testing happened, so quick clarification for those who weren't around then.... Yes, of the 30-40 CCH Aliens I pull tested a disturbing number smeared out of the test fixture well below their rated strength.


Hmmmm... I had that happen in my own "testing" once. It looked like a perfect placement of a yellow alien and then failed when I fell on it. The lobes were deformed, "smeared" as you say. If your explanation of the metal claimed not being the metal used is true, what a truly piece of shit company CCH was. Not that this is a newsflash at this point ;).

Is it weird that the only thing I've gotten out of this thread is that I need a new helmet?
