Hi,
I'm looking to buy a Trango Big Bro to replace a BD Camalot #5. So anyone can tell what's the best Big Bro number that's equivalent to the #5 Camalot?

I was thinking in the Bro #2...

Thanks

Andrey

The new #5 Camalot or the older style?
Why replace a cam with a Big Bro?

The new #5... or the older #4.5

I think the Big Bro is lighter and less bulky.

It is both, and it also doesn't fit as many locations as a Camalot, so in the end you picks yer poison.

More often than not, when I'm in big cam territory, I'm sliding the cam up with me between moves. Can't do that with a Big Bro. But you CAN use it as a step!

yeah, the #2. The #3 is a nice equivalent to the current #6 C4 for the odd placement.
