Alien Cams Alien Classic
Fixe claim that the Alien Cams are the best 4-lobed camming units in the world because of their superior flexibility and manufacturing process. Aliens are a long-standing favourite with trad and big wall climbers all over the world because of their uncanny ability to fit into tiny cracks and pin scars. The lobes are somewhat softer than those on other camming devices which helps to maintain a better grip on the rock and ensure that they won’t let you down. Don't forget, it's always best to have a mixture in your rack, so make sure you check out the Alien Hybrids, too.

I own a lot of trad gear and I've always heard "but my favorites are my aliens" "the best cams ever are my aliens" blah blah. I thought they might be ok but I mean really? the best cams ever made? But, let me tell you they are amazing. They feel just soo good. The flex is unbelievable but not like uneven, they just do exactly what you want them to do. the camming action feels great and the metal bites and feels bomber every time. I'll admit I also bought the revolution hybrids and the hybrids are lighter, the trigger has this bit of plastic for the thumb that's just a little bit more comfortable to hold. but, the camming action feels just a little bit...not right? IDK it's not as smooth as the classics. I've also fiddled around with Metolius master cams which are supposed to be comparable and honestly they don't come close. They're not nearly as flexible and the camming action feels ok but theyre not in the same league as the aliens. I have yet to play with some x4's to test them out but honestly, I don't need to I'm getting a double...maybe a triple rack of alien classics and calling it a day. I honestly hope I can save the money to get them bc when they go out of stock there'll just be the revolutions left which are still bomber af and lighter than the classics but IDK theres just something special about the classics and I'm a skeptic turned believer.
