Just wondering what people have heard about Ande cams (aka: cramming devices) verses the other brands on the market. Anyone used 'em?

I'll use my partners this weekend and get back to you. We usually split the rack between us with me throwing the active cams, gear sling, draws; and him the tricams and passive stuff and the rope. Works well. Anyway, having almost every brand cam (Aliens, Metolious, BD, WC, trango, and Rock Empire) I'll let you know how they compare. My advice is they will probably be fine as I've never used a CE UIAA cam that wasn't worthy of being racked. I believe they retail for $25 each US. It's a good deal and at the worst you can toss them in the extra bin for when you head to indian creek or somewhere else with parralel cracks where you need multiple sets of cams. I'm considering getting a set myself just to beef up the rack but as I said other then playing with them in the parking lot I have not placed them, yet!

Light weight and flexible. They are not finished as nicely as other cams, but they work just as well as anything else. Probably comparable to the original tech friends or clog cams. They don't come with a sewn runner, so that kind of sucks.
