Great piece of gear. I got the #2 and #2.5 to fill the gap i've felt between the .75-1 / 1-2 BD. DMM makes a bunch of in between sizes so if you don't need a whole set they're a great augment to any rack. I definitely fell in love with this design. Similar to the the TCU design but if you have thicker fingers you'll appreciate the wider stem.
Once you try these out you'll see that everything was well thought out. I love the extendable slings, but as mentoined below any route that really wanders you'll probably need to use a full size sling anyways.
I would recommend that everyone check these out in store. Once you pick it up you'll feel the difference.
3cu procams: 4.5 stars!

Like the Metolius ultralights, I love the new DMM procams. I only have 3 [1.25, 1.50, 1.75] of the 3cus that I got for extra desert splitter sizes... and I love them! They're not as light at the ultralights, but they're lighter than most other cams out there. I love the U-stem trigger system [you'll either love or hate this feature of them]. The doubled spectra sling isn't particularly useful on a full trad routes since you'll extend with a runner anyway, but on those bolt and gear routes, it's usually enough to avoid carrying runners [discretion advised, of course].
I'd buy Metolius ULs before these, but as a second set, these compliment them very well by giving slightly different sizes which can be very nice for splitters.
One final note: these are not brazed, like aliens that have had some brazing failures. If you want a solid, non-brazed stem connected to the axel for safety reasons, this is a great choice for you! Can be harder to see cam lobe contact in smallest sizes, though.

Best cams that I own ( I also have WC, Metolius ), they feel the most comfortable in the hands, trigger bar is as close to perfect as I have seen. They are light, easy to place, all sizes have the same strength rating, what more could you want. I know some people are very loyal to Camalots, I think people will feel the same way about these. Awesome!
