So a budy and i where talking the other night about what he should get for his first rack and i remembered seeing sometime ago the "dream rack" on MountainTools. i went back and took a look at it a second time last night and realized its only $1900 for almost tripples in certain size ranges. what do you think of what is offered? are the trango flex cams good? i know the springs used to be pretty weak. is this a good deal for a first rack for an avid trad climber?

I don't know anyone who uses trango flex cams.

Buying a full set of C4's up to 4 and then supplementing with a few used metolius quad cams down to 00 would be a great cheap starter rack. People sell their used metolius cams around $20 if you catch them on here.

Slings are cheap and a set of used nuts can be found cheap. The hardest part will be getting enough wiregates to make a light rack.

If you do truly save " (save $339+)- " - that's less than 20%. 20% off on all that gear is found easily, almost daily. If you're patient, 25-30% can be found on C4s and Mastercams, etc - and that's not even considering used gear. Matt N
