Description

By going direct to the axle (D.A.T.) Metolius has made the world's best selling mini cam even lighter and more versatile. This new technology makes the Metolius Ultralight TCU's the lightest units in the world. The design is focused on holding power, and they do this with their optimized cam angle for more outward force and wider cam faces for more grip. The Range Finder system makes them easier and safer to place than ever. A must have piece for free climbing, aid routes and alpine climbing.

Details

  • Narrow head width for the most placement options
  • Direct Axle Technology™ (DAT™) makes Ultralight TCUs the lightest cams in the world!
  • DAT allows for more placement options in shallow, narrow, or bottoming placements
  • DAT makes tricky placements easier due to better cam lobe visibility, especially in the small sizes
  • 13 mm (0.51") Monster Sling webbing (36% Dyneema/64% nylon)
  • Range Finder tells you at a glance if you've chosen the right size cam for the placement
  • Optimized cam angle for more outward force
  • Wider cam faces for more grip
  • U-shaped body for greater durability and unparalleled control during placement and retraction
  • Machined cam stops
  • Color-coded sewn slings and tubing
  • CNC machined for much greater precision than stamped or extruded cams
  • Hand built, inspected and individually proof tested in Bend, Oregon

Comments about Ultralight TCU:

I read a lot of reviews on these and everybody loves them. I compared them to my master cams and aliens and these (frustratingly) came in both larger and smaller in width, depending on the size you buy. It seems that the smaller aliens have a smaller width. Fortunately, I'm not using these in pin scars typically since I'm mostly climbing at the New and Red River Gorges. But for those of you looking for the tightest width possible, you might be disappointed 500ft off the ground. But I'm not a big wall or aid climber, so what do I know.
As for the con I have listed above, I noticed while climbing that after I placed one of these, it was able to pivot pretty freely, more so than Camalots. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. The cracks I was placing them in were pretty deep, so I placed them near the edge. I didn't notice them walking at all, but it was a little disconcerting to see them rotate around like that. I had no concern about it not holding, but I was a little concerned that it would walk too deep for retrieval.
If price is an issue, I'd go with these, no question. I've never owned C3s, so I don't know how they compare.
