Topic - Metolius Master Cam 0 defect?

APuddy - on 09 Jul 2013
I have just bought another Master Cam in size 0 (purple) and when it turned up I was a bit perplexed as it does not have any ridges in the cam head/lobes. All my other Master Cams have them even the 00. This seems wrong.

I've emailed Metolius and the response was:

"The smaller sizes no longer have grooves in them. This was done to increase the cam stop
strength."

Can any engineers (or cam designers!) explain this to me. I understand the logic about a greater contact surface but the ridges seem like a good idea to have a bit of 'bite'

Answers on a postcard!!!!!
