The Metolius Offset Master Cams are composed of two small lobes and two larger lobes to fit flared placements and pin scars and a flexible, single stem unit with an ultra-narrow head width for hard aid or free climbing. The Range Finder tells you at a glance if you've chosen the right size cam for the placement. Optimized cam angle for more outward force for added protection.
The Metolius Offset Master Cam uses two different lobe sizes to better fit a wide range of placements and a silky-smooth trigger assembly with an ergonomic thumb piece for precise control over placement and retraction.
Metolius Offset Master cams are designed to fit where other cams won't. So, the next time you come upon a pin scar or flaring crack, place one of these and keep climbing. Offset Master cams feature 2 small lobes and 2 large lobes, making the cam ideal for flaring cracks, pin scars and pockets. Single-stem design allows cams to fit into tight spots; flexible cable reduces walking and enables placement in horizontal cracks. Long body provides excellent reach when top-stepping in aiders and stretching for hard-to-reach placements. Ergonomic thumb piece creates excellent control while placing and removing cams. Green, yellow and red Range Finder markings tell you at a glance if you've chosen the right size cam for the crack. Lightweight Dyneema nylon slings are color-coded for quick, easy identification. Hand-built and tested by Metolius in Bend, Oregon.
Thanks to their offset cam lobes and ultra-narrow head design, Metolius Master Cams fit securely in places where other cams don't stand a chance. The ability for these cams to fit in shallow, flaring cracks makes them a top pick for cutting-edge free trad lines and aid climbs alike. Metolius added a large thumb loop to make placements easier and provide a high clip-in point when you're stretching for the next aid placement. Metolius also added cam stops to provide an extra level of security in case the lobes get tipped out as you climb above your gear.
