Thanks VTG. I'll keep my eye out for the July show.

Can anyone tell me why there is such an extreme change in the cam angle on the Totems? Looks like the cam lobes go flat @ 3/4 compression/ closed.

vegastradguy: Thanks for another great report!!

Great reports VTG - Thanks!!

BTW, thanks also for the hint about the Hollow Block. Looks like a nice piece of rope. The web site says it is for use with 7mm ropes and up, as apposed to the 4mm you mentioned above.

5 out of 5 stars Totem Cams! Finally! I'll start saving my pennies now. They seem to have a nice small head width and much flexibility. Do you think they are comparable/ replacement for Aliens? (are they really comparable to any cam on the market?)

Also, did you handle the Petzle 'biners? If so, how did the gate action feel? Seem like they will be comfortable to clip?

Many thanks for the effort and write up VTG!

5 out of 5 stars This was a really great watch! I forgot that Jonny, Micha and Wade were going to be in this series (RIP). The whole thing is well done even though they could have easily spent an hour or more on each segment.
