I got them from a man about a year ago, and I've used them a few times. I was going to resling them but first I wanted to find out what kind they were. When I started looking them up the only thing that looked like them were ones called joss rock cams. It turns out that they recalled them for failure.

They are either Wild Country Flex Friends, or one of the many clones thereof. If they are indeed the Joss cams, my advice would be not to use them. Do they say ANYTHING on them, anywhere? Gunkiemike

they look like Clog cams, or any number of WC ripoffs that are out there. John Wilder

The only thing they have on them is numbers engraved. The one in the photo has 406 on it and all the others have different numbers on them. Killpac

If they are indeed flex friends, the number is a production code. Mine say 409, which means made in 1994. You can look up what it means in the Wild Country web site. teece303

Does the one on the left have a broken spring? I see something sticking out under the bottom lobe. Gunkiemike
