Sharp-eyed rc.commer climberdaved spotted a potentially dangerous manufacturing defect in the #5 BigBro and we have decided to recall them. The inner tubes were not made to spec resulting in the angled end faces not being parallel. See the photo:
Full details and return instructions can be found on the Trango home page or just click here: http://www.trango.com/recall.php

There is nothing more important to me that your safety so please take a careful look at any #5 'Bros you may have and return any that are in question.

Respectfully,
Mal

Thanks for the public update, Mal! I wish all climbing manufacturers put this kind of effort into disclosures.

Sorry about any confusion between this thread, the locked thread by maldaly, and the Big Bro #5 problem thread.

I've made this one a sticky. Feel free to comment.

I think vegastradguy has it as was going to post it. Is that something I can do as a mere user?

`Thanks for the posting Maldaly. I am finally one of a hundred and all I win is a recall. I first read of this though the Texas Mountaineers. Checked to make sure it was up here on RC. I will follow up with the results of my return experience with Trango later
