3cu procams: 4.5 stars!
Review by: psprings, 2007-05-11
Like the Metolius ultralights, I love the new DMM procams. I only have 3 [1.25, 1.50, 1.75] of the 3cus that I got for extra desert splitter sizes... and I love them! They're not as light at the ultralights, but they're lighter than most other cams out there. I love the U-stem trigger system [you'll either love or hate this feature of them]. The doubled spectra sling isn't particularly useful on a full trad routes since you'll extend with a runner anyway, but on those bolt and gear routes, it's usually enough to avoid carrying runners [discretion advised, of course].
I'd buy Metolius ULs before these, but as a second set, these compliment them very well by giving slightly different sizes which can be very nice for splitters.
One final note: these are not brazed, like aliens that have had some brazing failures. If you want a solid, non-brazed stem connected to the axel for safety reasons, this is a great choice for you! Can be harder to see cam lobe contact in smallest sizes, though.
