/ How good do you think this gear is?
How good would you say this gear is?
Definitely better than nothing!

Might work if the cam is the first one loaded, if the hex gets loaded first it'll rock on the springs of the cam and the cam will pop out
Would love to see someone trying to place it while hanging out of an offwidth on lead!
Agree about needing to load the cam first, but even then im not confident as I think th hex could pop out upwards - needs a constriction in both directions. A parallel sided hex would work better.
I feel more validated in my purchase of a c4 5!
(I reckon the hex might roll when the cam is loaded, ergo it all falls out.)

Does it? I don't necessarily follow every thread. Don't suppose you have a link to one of them (a quick forum search didn't reveal anything)?
I'm fairly confident the cam sling would break before you crushed the hex...
Better than nowt
