Anybody have any of these? Are they worth having as doubles to a set of dragon cams

I haven't had them, but I'd only get ones that are half sizes between dragon sizes like e 1.0 & 2.0. I don't like that they are not fully anodized lobes anymore, and the cam angle is different. I use Metolius cams instead

I second that...I have the new Dragons and love them...I bought some Demons on sale and was disappointed ...they are more floppy than Mastercams in the larger sizes, and their range is much less than twin-axle cams. I have Mastercams (older thumb-loop style) from 00-6 and Dragons from 2-6 and am quite happy.

I have a full set. I really like sizes 2.5 to 4. They feel more stable to me than double-axle cams. The reduced range (compared to double axle) in the small sizes can be annoying.

The Demon appears to be discontinued. DMM's new site doesn't list it, and most retail sites are out of stock or don't list it at all.

Looks like it is going to be new old stock left now. I also understood the Demon cams to be sized similarly to the previous generation Wild Country Technical Friends, but I could be wrong without size data to back that up. People that are used to their Technical Friends could probably use the Demons as a replacement.

Get the dragons they're solid cams.  I like the extendable slings and the grip on the lobes over C4s.

Demon cams and Friends prior to the Helium Friends are/were exactly to spec in terms of range.

I’d wait to find some dragons on sale or supplement with metolius, the limited cam range on the demons just didn’t make sense to me when you can get dragons for just a few dollars more.
