Took three of the middle sizes up the Triple Direct. All the pros have been listed above, so instead I'll list one pretty serious con for all you aid climbers: the stem design (with tapered, pastic, protective aspect) is so thick that, in the smaller sizes, you can't see around the side of it to evaluate the placement of the cams. This became a problem several times, and I'd switch out for a small Alien, whose stem is narrow enough to see around no prob, or TCU, whose u-stem lets you see in between.
Still, you'll notice I gave these four stars, and that's not for nothing. There's just something intangible about BD cams...
