Alright so i rock the Wild Country Tech Friends and have been working on doubling up on some important cams needed for some routes i've been working on and what not... ANYWAY... i have an opp to get WC zeros; z4,z5, and z6 at a steal of a deal however i dont use these sizes as often enough but the deal is to good to pass up and to double up the 00, 0, and 0.5 WC techincal friends that i already have i would spend more then this deal, not by much but enough to ask the question...

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND GETTING THE ZEROS OVER THE TECHNICAL FRIENDS AS YOUR DOUBLES OR STICK WITH THE TECH FRIENDS?

I ONLY HAVE TILL 5:30PM TODAY TO MAKE THIS DEAL!!!

Well the zeros arent as strong but they are lighter, thats my reason for asking.. What would you rather have on your rack; the zeros or the Tech friends?

zeros. because they are closer to aliens (smaller head, flexible stem).

Another vote for the Zeroes. Lighter, more flexible, better action.

I vote for the Zeros, too. I've the Z4 and Z5 and use them quite often.

As for their rated breaking strengths, 6kN, if you climb above BD stoppers #4 and #5, also rated to 6kN, I don't think you should have any problem (due to fear of low strength) climbing above one of these cams.

I'm in Illinois, too. If you pass up on this opportunity, PM me and I'll take them (if it's as good of a deal as you imply).
