Very recently got this cam (#2) from at $60 when they ran a special on them about 3 months ago (backordered big time). Tried it out for the first time this weekend and the range/placement options are very impressive. The #2 Link cam definitely has the range of .75-2 Camalots with a width profile that is 1/4 wider than a #2 Camalot. The extra width is definitely the only downside of this cam which needs to be addressed in future design iterations. What sets this cam apart from the other mondo expando cams (Super/Maxcam) is that it protects inwardly flaring cracks VERY well. Have you have ever had a placement where a smaller cam fits but if it walks into the crack it becomes useless and a larger cam cannot get by the inital "lip" to protect the wider part in the back? Well this baby folds up like an accordian to clear the "lip" and then expands to fit the flared part of the crack perfectly resulting in the most bomber placements I have ever seen. Definitely worth getting one to supplement your rack and also a real conversation piece....
