I've got the Red and the Yellow of these and I love them. I climb mostly at Joshua Tree and I use or could use these the majority of every route I go up there. They are obviously not meant for parallel cracks but for bottelneck type placments hence the offset. They are fairly wide and seem to be very stable and don't want to walk. If you're having trouble locating Hybrid Aliens you may want to give these a shot. I'm glad I did.

Even thought the technical cams of WC are better, these are good as well.I've had enough crags where my WC Offset cam size 1.5 places bomber pro.But it's true that the bigger sizes aren't very bomber in big parallel cracks.I't would be a good expension for your existing rack.

These things don't work nearly as well as normal cams in parallel cracks. If the crack is flaring, they're nice to have though. I wouldn't recommend these as a first, or even a second set of cams. If you've got extra money or climb lots of flaring stuff, they're not bad to have.
