Article: Metolius Offset TCU Editorial Review
Kate- thanks for the review! I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a set.
I would like to point out that the cam stops on the smallest sizes are worthless as such and should not be trusted in an open placement. I've sheared them off on a #0 on a very short fall when the cam slid out of a bad placement. As to the head width, over all the Metolius TCU and CCH have the same head width. But the outside cable of the TCU doesn't need to be in the crack. If stuffing straight into a pocket it might be an issue, but shallow bottoming cracks the TCU will sometimes work where the CCH won't. It would also be interesting to see how much surface area each unit has as a whole on its cams for a comparable size, C3 vs. TCU vs. CCH. The cams on the TCU look thicker than the CCH, it hard to see the C3 vs. TCU. -Nate
