Cam stops don't break on their own or unweighted. Someone is either mistaken or misrepresenting the facts. As to cam stops failing in a fall - it physically can't happen if pro is properly placed, the cam lobe geometries relative to the axle don't permit it. The only way it can happen is if they are misplaced or walk out to a width of crack relative to the cam lobes where it can - there is no other way.



just curious ... how many here have owned and fallen on the 0 and 00 ULTCU/ULPC/Mastercams ...
I have taken two falls on my 0 Master Cam. The first time it ripped from rock failure, the second time it held. But both falls were short, the piece was just below my foot. I have used the 00/0 and 0/1 offset Master Cams a fair amount on aid, although I have never fallen on them on aid. My partner fell on a 0 Master Cam last season and umbrellaed the cam in its placement, shearing off the cam stops.
