Gambits for conversation... 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Adk, 2008-07-10

Conversation it is...These shoes replaced my ASOLO's of the 1990's.
Rubber is great. Toe pointing is a piece of cake and they as comfy as my old friends yet much more supportive.
I just now need my toes to get stronger so that I can get the most out of these bad boys.
Con: Rand is pulling a bit from the nubuck and I have only climbed 50 pitches with them.
Now, to convince my son to ditch his coyotes and buy these.

Gave it a 4 but deserves a "5" 4 out of 5 stars

This cam performs just as you want it to. In cracks the size of hand jams, this cam is the cam to go to. It's solid, smooth as silk and places with ease. The independant cam lobes, seem to just contact the rock perfectly. Talk about nice cam contact!!!
I've placed this cam on every lead I've been on and I will surely buy another small as well as the medium. Great cam that is tough. The cam "wires" rock!!!

Great stuff with great packaging. Nice sealable package and label pictures. LOL Gotta have these for those non-climbers to gaze at!
The chalk does what I want it to. Seems to be available everyehere I go as well. Wish they made it in the color brown.
