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. True the extra metal in contact in link cams may help prevent walking but for any load the cam operates in pretty much the same fashion as a normal four cam unit.

If you want greater contact area to go for metolius FAT cams. However a greater contact area isn't really needed unless you climb on soft rock.
