I respect Rich's opinion, and I haven't seen these things yet, but it worries me that all the springy things that regulate the cams are in a portion of the device that will be loaded over an edge in horizontal placements.




This is my opinion as much as it is Rich's... Rich showed us a prototype and talked somewhat enthusiastically about the design features. I came away impressed and ready to forego buying any Metolius gear.

Regardless, you may have a good point about the cam springs.

OF Course I will purchase these. ..
But, my first visual impression is they look a bit bulky and stiff.




They are not bulky at all. Wait till you see the actual device not just an internet photo.

I had the pleasure of climbing with Rich a few weeks ago, and he had prototypes with him that he used. They're pretty cool. The springs are encased in plastic. I think I actually recall Rich saying he suggested a minor modification, which BD actually made.

Incidentally, he said the grey Aliens have been hard for him to come by lately, apparently because one of the big outfitters (EMS, maybe?) is carrying them.
