I once offended the hell out of the president of OM for making unsubstantiated remarks about their prison labor program on usenet. I eventually apologized but have had not interaction with the company since.

Article: Link Cam Editorial Review
"I have seen may reviews comment that the Link cams have more contact area. This is quite misleading. When placed, the actual working contact area of the cam still remains the same as compared to regular cams."

The first and the 3rd photos suggest you're wrong, as does my personal experience. Especially in cracks that are wider in the back than in front, or V-slots where gthey get narrow below the piece, often the retracted parts of the cam remain in full contact with the rock. In a perfectly parallel crack I would agree. Look at the 3rd photo in particular, that's the behavior I'm talking about. Cheers
