Double-axle design lets the Black Diamond Camalot C4s cover a greater range of crack sizes and makes them far stronger than single-axle cams. Now on their 3rd generation, the Black Diamond Camalot C4s are 30 lighter than the originals. The cable loop trigger is easy to grab off your rack, and the slings are easy to handle with winter gloves on. Black Diamond Camalot C4 Features: Technical Information Individually tested to half their rated strength Newly designed cams and stem contribute up to a 20 weight savings per size New patent-pending C-Loop stem uses a continuous cable, offering tremendous strength and flexibility Double-axle design continues to offer widest range possible in each size

true to the test 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: godfather2, 2011-01-13

I've taken a couple falls in the 5-10' range on the c4's without issue. they are use to use and seam to be bomber! the color coating for different sizes has been around for years, but I still remark at its simple efficiency.

If I had 1 wish though, it would be to see a slightly lighter version.

gold 5 out of 5 stars

#0.5 to #3 BD C4's are the only way to go. Don't waste your money on anything else in this range.

still my favorite for Yosemite 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: chrismcnamara, 2010-05-16

The Black Diamond Camalot C4 is still my favorite one-inch and larger cam for big walls and trad climbs. It works better than nearly any other cam for shallow and awkward placements often encountered in Yosemite and other granite areas. It is very durable and if you look at the racks of accomplished Yosemite climbers you will see this is the cam of choice.
