A lovely new bit of kit from metolius. Complete with all the standard features you expect to find on a modern cam, as well as much more.
Metolius have removed any unnecessary bits and bobs and streamlined the trigger system, making for a lightweight cam that will fit where others just wont.
The single stem design makes it extremely flexible, so no worries about having it over an edge, this also helps to reduce walking, and the range finder on the cam stops lets you rapidly judge the quality of you placement.
With a good expansion range on each cam, and a good range of sizes that will protect from tiny scars, to hand jam cracks, the metolius master cam would be a fine edition to any climbers rack.
\" First and foremost, I want to say that Metolius has designed and built a great cam in the Master Cam. All of my friends who climbed on them gave them great reviews on placement and ease of use. When I was cranking at my limit, I found myself reaching for the Master Cam just as often, if not more so, than my C3s or the Aliens. Perhaps even more surprisingly, I found myself reaching for my green Master Cam more often than my #1 C4- something I really did not expect to happen! \"
\" Like any good addiction, putting together a trad rack is one that always leaves you looking for that next piece of gear to buy. Ever since I started building my rack Iíve been thinking about what smaller cams to add in order to give me more versatility. Of course the CCH Aliens are popular, and I really liked the Black Diamond C3 cams the one time I used them. However, I had it on good authority that I should wait to buy anything until late 2008 when Metolius would be coming out with their latest cam set, the Master Cams. \"
