I just got a hold of the #2 Maxcam to try. The manufacturing is well done and the device seems solid. The offset stem was not an issue in the 10 different placements I made with it yesterday and today.
I would have given it 5 carabiners but the trigger wires seem to be too far towards the outside of the trigger. My fingers feel spread out a tiny bit too far. They also seem to be hanging over the edge of the trigger a tiny bit. This is just minor complaint and I will defintely recommend these cams.
Also, this is the first cam I've had that has a doubled sling. It seems a bit short and when fully extended, it is not much longer than the regular slings on my old BD Camalots (pre C4). It seems useful for racking but would still need a QD or longer sling added when climbing.
