So light! Slightly smaller then my Livewires, so a bit harder to clip when very pumped, but they are lighter, so you pays your money and takes your choice.

The only nice thing you can say is that they are cheap. If you want a cheap cam then look for a sale or get a rock empire rather then these. That said they are CE tested so should do the job.

If you can get the 18cm ones cheap they would be an ok buy, but they are heavy by todays standards. I've just replaced them and it would have cost me more to buy them again then get wiregates.

I got 20cm ones with open dyneema slings. They are very floppy so great for trad as we as being very easy to clip. Upgraded from Black Diamond Quickslivers and they seem much lighter. They cost me 35 ($65) from Snow and Rock and a bargin.
