The best cams I've ever used. Metolious cams I've purchased felt unbelievable when they were new, but when they got dirty, the smoothness went to hell. I still have the original Camalots, which were the double stem versions I purchased 15 years ago and they work nearly flawlessly.

I've owned 4 Mammut ropes and they are fantastic. I highly recommend the Duodess version which changes pattern in the middle of the rope. Not only can you find the middle easily, you can easily find both ends. The first time you're benighted on a route with a Duodess is when the extra money is totally worth it.
