Review for Short Ultracenders. These are smooth and bombproof.


  • Strength
  • CMI lifetime guarantee/customer service
  • Easy to thumb the cam for down climb
  • Kinder on rope than Petzl


  • Weight
  • Cam seems to wear slightly faster than Petzl

I got a pair of these a long time ago. Wore out the cams around 100,000'. CMI replaced the cams, then after 50,000-70,000' more the cams got replaced again.  

I still have them, and they still work, but the rope wells are getting very worn so I don't use them as much as I did.  

Super company, awesome product, and made in the USA.
