DMM Dragon Cam Set 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
The DMM Dragon Cam Set 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 contains six cams, sizes 0-6. Unique to the Dragon Cams are the 'TripleGrip' lobes. Compare the lobes of a BD or WC cam to the lobes of a Dragon cam you'll notice the difference: each of the Dragon's lobes are split into three sections. This creates additional bite points between the lobe and the rock, increasing the friction between the cam lobe and the rock it's placed in. This increases holding power and reduces walking, particularly in slick or soft rock types and marginal placements.
Another feature of the Dragon Cams is the hot-forged thumb press in place of the more often seen thumb loop, making the Dragon Cams up to 32% lighter than their competitors as well as allowing it to have an extendable sling with no strength penalty.

I was searching for a long time to find the cams that suit my needs and the same time for a price that could be affordable.
I have used the cams in limestone several times and i can say only that the product has only pros to present in terms of technical characteristics.
More specifically the friction was incredible and the thumb loop was easy to use in contrast with what I had read in some reviews.
Although it's not considered as the top product of its category it can be a trustworthy and reliable equipment for challenging routes in very good price.

The friction that these cams provide is quite amazing! Comes at the cost of a little more weight but placements feel more secure to me than some of the other brands. The extendable sling is a very smart feature, I love this most about these cams. The downside is, there is no thumb-loop. I got used to this and it is no problem, it is just that you cannot place the cams as deep as with thumb loop (because your hand has to grab more around the cam). 4/5 stars because they're not perfect yet (weight mostly) but it gets quite close. Overall, the best deal around in terms of price/quality!
