One of the few fives...

This is one of the few pieces of gear I'd give a 5 to, as I consider them essentially perfect. You'd be amazed the places they fit, and you'd be amazed how stubbornly they hold there.
I typically use the smallest two sizes the most (pink and red), but brown and purple see some light use as well. I don't care for the larger sizes - they tend to have stability issues - but the smaller units are absolutely awesome and should be on every trad rack.
Work great in cracks, bottlenecks, pockets, and especially shine in horizontals, where there's a lip at the edge of the crack or pocket. Often, it's too funky in there for a cam, and there are no constrictions for a nut. TriCam to the rescue! Just pop 'em in nose down, give a stiff yank to set 'em in place, and he'll hold on for any whipper you care to throw (in the direction of pull, of course :)
Must-haves. 5 out of 5.
