Also, I rarely clip directly to the cam. I prefer to extend it, for various reasons depending on the circumstances that are mostly dictated by where and the type of routes I climb. So even if they had dyneema slings, I wouldn't use them much except to clip to my harness.

doesnt matter ... it still wears out and rubs against the rock .. when the rope moves, and when you fall ... not to mention the time in the sun

you dont clip directly to the thumb loop do you? ... go out and replace em Tongue

i usually extend my camalots, yet after a few years the slings are worn, and time to be replaced after this season ...

theres a lot of "issues" floating around the internet about dyneema ... a telling sign is that most manufacturers are moving TOWARDS using more dyneema .. in daily use high wear items like harnesses

many manufacturers made the move years ago for cam and hex slings ... when was the last time you heard about one of those breaking (not being cut) in a real life fall
