i see more reports of blown metollius 0 and 00 cams than links ...

who knows ... maybe they werent "placed" properly, maybe its the limitations of the gear ... at least one person however didnt even fall on it ...

i personally blew out a purple TCU 0 cam in what i thought was a good placement ... the cam stops inverted and the cam was unusable

im not running around saying they are "unsafe" ... no gear is perfectly safe



i will say this ... my purple link cam is my most fallen on cam ... and i havent died yet ...

if you want to be a "safe" (whatever that is) trad climber, dont depend on a single piece of gear unless you have no choice ... as the gear can pull, the rock can break, etc ...
