I just found out that size 5 and 6 old style Wild Country technical friends have been discontinued, the last of a classic design has gone from their range. I'd have happily paid for those on the chance of using them at some point. 

I think there's an integrity to the single axle design, which might only be theoretical to do with stem movement not disturbing the placement if the springs are strong enough, but still worth having...

Boo hiss at Wild Country.

Do you climb? Not a sarcastic question at all, I just somehow had, for whatever reason, the idea that you didn’t climb. So your complaint about cams caught me by surprise

I used to a lot, until dodgy elbows happened, and have climbed sporadically for the past 15 years and seem to have found a sweet spot rehab wise now, I'm hoping this year is the year I get back into it more continuously and find a level I can enjoy climbing at.
