Cams for sale:
0.75 BD Camalot Jr (green) $40
0.5 BD Camalot Jr (purple) $40
Buy both for $75 shipped OBO

These classic cams are great for anyone building their first trad rack or wanting multiples for a trip to Indian Creek. The only thing that could get you more crag cred than racking up with these would be leading 5.9R/X slab in a swami belt, but buying these would be way easier.

They were reslung by Mountain Tools a few years back and have been lubricated with White Lightning wax lube as needed. I trust them to hold a fall (in a good placement, of course) and am only selling them because I’d like to get a different style of cam.

PayPal G&S included in price, but also willing to discuss local pickup in OK or NWA. Thanks for looking!

People buying old gear for this price makes me chuckle. BUT if stupid people will buy then sell!

Lol! I’m not in a hurry to sell them so I figured it couldn’t hurt to feel out the market. I’m sure I’ll eventually price drop before they go. Also, for some people budget is the main factor, so even if a brand new cam is just $5 more, they’d prefer to save the money. That doesn’t make them stupid

Buying a 25 year old cam with known design flaws--for $40 each--would definitely make someone pretty stupid in my book!

These should be given away.

They aren’t that well known... what are you talking about? They’re equal if not better in horizontals than the newer C4s, and pretty much the same head width so they perform about the same in vertical placements

I've got these exact cams that get put into play when I need triples...I'll gladly give them to anyone willing to buy me new C4s in the same size.

Wow, I hadn’t seen that info. Thanks! That’s definitely a bad failure mode. Not to argue that they’re worth $40, but wouldn’t 9kN be enough for most trad falls (and obviously for use as a TR anchor piece)?

In fact, the X4s (which I bought to replace these) are only rated to 9kN in those sizes
