Metolius Ultralight Power Cam -

Metolius designed its Ultralight Power Cam to give you bomber trad gear that doesn't weigh you down. Its lightweight appeal is due to the Direct Axle Technology, which places each lobe as close to one another as possible. This technology also helps you set each cam in tricky, shallow, and narrow placements with ease. Metolius made each piece with four wide lobes that increase its grip on the rock as opposed to conventional four-lobed designs, and each lobe has a cam stop that helps it act passively like a stopper. CNC machined means each cam gives better precision so you don't fumble around when you're placing it. The U-shaped double stem is very durable, and yet remains highly flexible for better control when you're placing it or your second is cleaning it. Each cam comes with a color-coded Monster sling for easier identification on the wall, and the Range Finder on sizes 2 - 8 let you know if whether you're placement is at the most minimum or maximum range available on the cam.

My review of Power Cams,got other cams

I have several different types/brands types of cams... I like power cams the best! It creates the most forse in a crack as it expands, with gives better chance of holding in a fall...because of cam shape! Large cams (any brand) tend to walk in crack easier...placement of any cam should be looked at, for fit and light/med. pull to check hold...also alittle movement side ways, will help tell you if/how much cam will walk(move out of position)! Good from Beginers to Advanced!

Solid protection!

These are good, sound, protection pieces. The Direct Axle has reduced the head width from the original design - a big plus. A wide cam-face holds well.

Not so sure

The head on these cams is too wide for small tricky placements. I have a 0 and have a hard time finding cracks for it as the head is wider than my BD's. I think I'll go with TCU's next time.
