A case for color coded racking biners

Just got my Mastercams back from Metolius with fresh reslings. They got the purple 0 and offset purple-grey 0/00 backward; e.g., the grey sling is on the regular cam and the purple one is on the offset. Man, my partners are gonna hate me!

(Not really - they're practically the same cam since the purple/grey lobes are both so tiny. And shout out to Metolius for a nice job and great price overall.)

Pat with Metolius Customer Service here. Shoot me an email at and we'll arrange to get that sling mixup corrected for you.

Haha, oh man... Metolius folks are truly amazing. 

To be clear, these cams are excellent and the resling job was fantastic. Really just stoking the flames of the perennial (and somewhat ridiculous) "to coordinate or not to coordinate racking biners" discussion... but I really appreciate the response, Pat!

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
