As youíve probably noticed, the 2009 Trango Homemade Cam World Cup has come to an end. Competition in the Beauty Pageant portion of the competition was fierce, but in the end the Webcam pulled ahead to win with 31% of the votes and the set of Ballnutz will be going to Rschap. Congratulations! If youíd like to see the full results kindly follow this link to the Beauty Pageant thread.

As amusing as the Beauty Pageant was there is a lot more to gear than just good looks, so the main event involved testing the gear for strength, quality of construction and ease of use. The full breakdown of the scoring process is available here: Link

Iím sure youíre going to scroll to the end to see who the winner is before reading any further, Iíll save you the trouble and give the results right here:



Congratulations to Batguano and his Flexy Lady! I hope you like offwidths, because thereís most of a set of Trango Big Broís headed your way!

On a side note, anyone who's been following the silliness here in The Lab will probably notice a big difference in the force charts below in comparison to the ones I posted for earlier tests; the little dips and pauses in the loading have are pretty much gone and the loading profile is much more linear. The short explanation is that the hand pump turned out to have nowhere near the capacity needed for the new hydraulic cylinder so its been replaced with an electric pump. Its much noisier, which makes it harder to hear the parts breaking, but I think its worth it since it applies the load in a much more consistent manner than the old (leaky) hand pump and makes the chart of the forces much more meaningful. Plus I can go hide in relative safety while parts go flying rather than sitting there hoping for the best...

Oh, and to make it easy on everyone, here's a list of the strengths:
