Hey all,

I heard recently from a buddy that there was a company out of Colorado that was making an alternative to the valley giant 9. Does anyone know about this? Are they for sale yet? Anyone know the brand? Or does anyone know any other alternatives to them for big cams? · · Unknown Hometown · Joined Oct 2014 · Points: 220

Might be Wired Bliss, but they are not active anymore. They were going to produce a big cam but never got it through production.

Also, there was something like Dee's cams? Also wide crack cams that had a good design, but I can't think of the actual name, since I just did a google search for "Dee's Cams" and came up with nothing...

A guy named Evan Deis in Colorado is making small batches of 9" and 12" cams that look really nice. I'm not sure where he's selling them, if anywhere, but a mutual friend put us in contact and he sent me some info on them. 740g for the 9". I almost ordered one, but then I realized I could probably find better ways to spend $200 than on a 9" cam. 

Also, I've been hearing talk of BD potentially coming out with a new big cam somewhat soonish, but I could be 100% wrong on this one.

Erick from the Taco is making some truly incredible pieces of art.

Way lighter and perhaps better as a pusher piece, I have faith in his engineering prowess.

Check them out!

Or you can buy wooden blocks to extend the range of a Bdel #6
