Black Diamond Camalot C4 Review
"Black Diamond Camalots are likely the most widely applicable and quality cam on the market, winning them our Editors' Choice award. Their double axle design provides a good range, making each unit suitable for a wide range of possible placements; plus we found them to be the one of the best cams we tested for shallow and awkward placements." -Chris McNamara ⋅ Founder and Editor-in-Chief, OutdoorGearLab

Some time ago I started to build my trad/alpine rack and faced quite a common problem. Which camming device to choose? There are quite many available on the market: BD, DMM, WC, KONG, METOLIUS, TRANGO etc. To narrow the list I went to our local equipment shop basically to hold them in hands and get the impression in real life, not by comments on the web. After that my "to choose from" list was cut from six to two models - BD C4 and DMM Dragon (we didn't have WC cams in our stock, so I couldn't compare them). Next step was real life test on rocks and this is the most important part. So why I chose DB C4 other DMM Dragon. First of all smoothness of closing/opening the cam, BD opens and closes smoothly like a hot knife going through the butter. Secondly, thumb loop, no matter how pumped you are you can always get your cam and place it without shakingly finding the balance in your hand and trying to close it (I had these problems with DMM Dragon, of course, it is a matter of practice but still, for newbie I presume it is much easier to work with cam with thumb loop). And third is the build quality. These cams are solid and feels like they gonna last forever. So if you are looking for real work horse - go for BD C4 cams. This is a long time investment you won't regret buying.
P.S. If BD could add an extendable sling to their cams (like DMM did) they would be out of the competition! This is the only minus I could find.
Very good quality product and trustworthy!!!
Really good gear! Good quality. I love that you can hang the cam on your thumbs.
