Just speaking about the slung cams, it occurs to me that the slings attached to those cams are about twice as strong as the cams themselves.
I can't think of any gear that is anywhere near 22kn.
I think as long as the cam slings are clean, unfrayed and not sun bleached, they should be OK.

Fortunately I can afford to buy brand new gear.
A student on a tight budget has a good reason to buy used gear. If they can NOT stomach the fact that the history is uncertain then .......There is a saying that goes "The cheap comes out expensive"
