I disagree with the idea these are only for experience trad leaders, just be careful placing them to insure the ball is indeed engaged correctly; they are not something you want to just shove in a crack blind like a regular cam, but rather need to be placed more like a nut.
These units are fabulous in pretty much any orientation and I've taken and cleaned lots of leader falls with them and never had one pop or had any trouble cleaning them - quite the contrary, they come right out after multiple falls. I now have 10 of them and feel naked without at least a couple on my rack.
My main complaint with the Camp version compared with the Lowe is they have shortened the length from springbar to the tip which was a very bad decision.
One mod: on the smallest three I heat the lower plastic tubing real good and squash it flat as it is wider than the actual piece and is a hassle in thin cracks.
