Has anyone purchased the .25 or .125 Tri-cams yet? If so, what do you think?

There have been numerous posts in the past on modifying Tri-cams to make smaller ones. I wonder how these will compare.

I ordered them but the .5 is on back order.

I did a quick search and apologize if I'm posting old news here.

I've placed production prototype samples a few times in one day of climbing last summer. They seemed like tri-cams, only smaller. Much smaller. Like Tiny.

I have to admit I'm not a tri-cam guy, and I really don't have the skill set to give any real insight. Now hexes... ;\)

My .125 came in yesterday. You're right, they're tiny! It's only about the size of a dime. I think I'm going to be more interested in using the .25. It's currently on backorder.

Every time I read somebody saying "oh, I modded my small tricam, and it's gotta be the same size as the new one" I laugh uncontrollably.

The .25 is NOT all that much bigger than the .125! Or at least to my non-tricam accustomed brain, which as I wrote above is not the best judge of these things.

I took a look at the .125 It doesn't look like it would be any more useful than a small hex, or nut.

Sorry if this has been posted previously, but I haven't been on this forum in a looooong time.

A potential issue with some units has been identified. Check out

Sounds like great clean aid gear. I'd get the small ones just for mostly clean trade routes in the valley.

It seemed like all the harder, clean placements on Zion walls were tri-cams.
