More people would see this if it was located in the for sale section. Also, I wouldn't recommend tri-cams larger than the solid forged size. Not really appropriate for the SE.

I think what Tom was saying is the size, you don't need that big of pro for most routes in the SE. the milled vs stamped and bolted is a size reference. think of it like do you really need a #6 BD C4 for alpine climbing? "most" places when using BD cam sizing a 4 is as big or bigger than you'll ever need, same is true of other pro as well, I climbed you years never having anything bigger than a #3 and when I lived in the NE I hardely ever used even that, all depends on what the areas you are going to climb require. a pink tri can be used on almost any pitch of climbing, where I have the larger tri's but have yet to carry or use them....

They make gear that is bigger than a BD 3?

bump. $30 shipped for the two tricams.
