/ Little-ish cams
I've got a 1 - 5 dragon set and 1 - 3 dragon set so was looking at either a 00 or 0 baby dragon.
But then the deamons are a bit cheeper, as are 3cu. So am now unsure what to go for, any one tried the little deamons or dragons?
Maybe check out the new BD X4s too - haven't used these yet though so can't comment.
Yellow BD C3. It's the perfect cam. Goes in everything. We call it the panic cam!
Should say £50 £55 quid is prob the top I can ask for. C3s look very nice but pricy.
Yellow master cams any good?
This is my current chart of potenital cams. All info from Needlesports and all would require a krab to rack.
Cam min max range holding price
dragon 0 16 26.7 10.7 12 48
0.5 demon 17 24 7 14 36
0.75 basic 16.6 26.1 9.5 9 55
0.5 4cu 17 24 7 1 30
0.5 wc 16.55 26.6 10.05 12 35
2 mastercam 15.7 22.6 6.9 10 50
Local shop also has 3cu in stock for £28 should they be on the list of things to look at?
I don't want to waste money on something that's not very good when a tenner more would work better (say the extra money on a basic over a demon).
I found the wild country zeros to be awful, just didnt feel right - mate of mine swears by them though...
C3 No.2: 14.2 to 22.6.
C4 0.3: 13.8 to 23.4.
According to that the C4 is more versatile. I'm not a sad git I just happen to have these figures to hand to help me decide how to optimise my choices. OK perhaps that is a little sad. :-)
Perhaps the narrow head is the decider?
The BD X4s are awesome. Find someone who is going to the US and get them to bring them back. They cost the same in US$ as they do in GBP£ and it makes them 2/3 of the price. And BD are really the best.
That would be nice but not gonna happen!
Think its down to Needlesports totem basic or a master cam from the Barn. Or a dragon from where ever.
