I just got this #0 master cam and the first day i took it out i placed it in a thin crack in a dihedral. I screwed up the move and fell with my knot maybe a foot above the cam, if not less. It was a very low impact fall almost like sitting down. when my partner followed and retrieved my cam it looked like this. this was the first time i placed it and kinda disappointed that the head bent so easily. Is this cam ready for retirement? I have yet to place it since, holding off because im just not sure if it is still safe. I have no problem retiring this piece but if this is something that happens with these little piece and is still fine i would like to know. if this has happened to anyone else please let me know what you think. there is no crack on the cam itself, everything look and works fine, except for the slight bend. let me know what you think
