I may be inept at searching the old posts but I couldn't find any current info on reslinging tricams

I wanted to use Forest Safety Products but his site is down, is he no longer working? So does anybody have a good recommendation on where I can get 4 or 5 tricams re-slung, ideally in the Denver/Colorado Springs area?

I think most places will require you to send them by mail. If Forest is down, check Fish, I seem to remember Russ reslings tricams as well. You here Russ? Erik W

I just sent some cams to Mountain Tools to get them reslung. They do Tricams too, though they're a bit pricey at $9.50 per piece. Tristan Higbee

Last year I reslung my old Tricams for about the sixth time.
I just buy some tubular webbing and resling them myself with a water knot aka ringbend.
You can use tape to tighten them near the unit, but I've found that if I leave the tape off the Tricams double as slings if need be.

I've heard they are really hard to get ahold of, but I put my email in to them as I couldn't find the info on their webpage, but thanks for the tip.

That is a little more than I'd hoped for, esp if I throw shipping on top, but right now they are looking the easiest.

Thanks guys, if you have more places, keep them comping please.

FYI, I heard back from Fish and they do not do Tri-cams either. Looks like Mountain Tools is my choice Derek W

Forest is still in business, they are just having problems with their internet guy. I am not sure if they do tricams or not. Here is their info.

This doesn't apply to the OP, so may be off-topic. But if anyone else out there is reslinging BD C4's, you should definitely consider this information put out here by BD before deciding where to send them:

Those pics certainly got my attention, particularly the tweaking done at only 4kn.

At $5 a pop, sending C4/C3 cams to BD to be reslung with their specific sew seems like a good idea.

And good info Sirius. I'd heard of that but never seen the study. Thanks.
