Product Description Item No.   10021964

The Ultra Light TCU Pack is great for both alpine and free climbing where weight is a critical factor. Aid climbers also love 'em because their narrow head width allows them to fit so many placements that other cams won't, like shallow seams, pockets and pin scars. Now with the Range Finder feedback system, they are easier and safer to place than ever! The stainless steel, U-shaped body offers greater durability than single-stem units and unparalleled control during placement and retraction. As with all Metolius cams, the design is focused on holding power. Metolius TCUs are a must-have for any climber's rack!

By going direct to the axle (D.A.T.) Metolius has made the world's best selling mini cam even lighter and more versatile. This new technology makes our TCU's the lightest units in the world, opens up a myriad of placement options and makes placement easier. The design is focused on holding power, and we do this with our optimized cam angle for more outward force and wider cam faces for more grip. The Range Finder system makes them easier and safer to place than ever. The Ultra Light TCU Pack is a must have piece for free climbing, aid routes and alpine climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bomber I find myself placing these babies essentially every area I climb in. They're quite intuitive and much cheaper than most other small-range cams on the market. Given this, I don't see any reason why not to purchase them! However, I would disagree slightly with the remarks about the color-coded range finder. I trust my eyes and personal experience much more, especially since I think this sort of system can breed a tendency to overcam your placements, and nobody likes losing a cam! Bottom line: these are fantastic cams but don't become incompetent and follow the color-coded system every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cams! I was really glad I listened to other for once! Im a diehard BD fan, but I was told that these are better than the C-3's. And they are. they are alot easier to contract and place. Great for aid climbing and conservative climbers like myself who would rather place another bit of pro and have my buddy clean it, than to take a 30 foot whipper. No thanks. They are light and very easy to identify. I do agree with others though as I pay no attention to the color system. Basic principals of cam placement are going to be better than trusting little dots. Overall, best small range cam for your money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crucial component of a "small gear" rack They're light, versatile, and cheap. Having three lobes is nice because you can switch the orientation of the single lobe to fit certain undulating cracks. I have found sizes 1-2 to be the most used. My only point of concern is that the U-stem design increase the profile of the unit due to the two terminal points. I have yet to really encounter a situation where this has been a problem, but it's worth noting that something like a BD C3 has a lower-profile head. Even considering that, TCUs are a favorite of mine, and I never feel uneasy about moving above one if it's placed well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awsome cam.... i've crammed these bad boys into just about anything i can fit them into.... even rocks! The best thing about these cams are the ease of being able to place your pro with only your thumb and index finger... were my BD and others you need to use a thumb and two fingers..... this really helps out, seeing my dog bit three fingers off my right hand last year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TCU's are life savers These cams have kept my ass off out of sketchy situations on many occasions. Don't think it's fit? Try it, you'll be surprised. The triggers are super smooth, stems are nice and flexible. The cam indicator is sort of nice, but sort of useless, if you take it at face value you might over cam and get some gear stuck, so be aware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like these TCUs Simple, light weight, well made, narrow head width, and available in tiny sizes. ,,,,The metolius colour coding is consistent across their product range, so once you learn the TCUs, you also know the PowerCams and Master Cams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from work well for small cracks I have used all of them. They work well in the small cracks, better then some of the other smaller cams as these have wider lobs. Also the green/yellow/red marking make sit easier to see if they placed well or not.
