Black Diamond Camalot C4 Mega Set

When placed in their optimal camming position, these cams walk minimally. The Fixe Alien Revolutions, Wild Country Friends and the DMM Dragon Cams all have a leg up on the C4 when it comes to walking because they have their extendable sling. No, the sling is slightly shorter but basically if you need a quick draw for the name c4s youd need it for the old as well.

Fans of longer extendable slings may not like them, since they do require extending with a quickdraw more often. I was wondering if this shorter sling would lead to more walking as the cam was being tugged on by the rope, but so far I’ve noticed no difference versus the previous model. I’ve not really noticed the latter much, but this is mainly because I have a particular way of racking my cams anyway. For generations, Black Diamond has been at the forefront of climbing protection technology. Their newest line of C4s are 10% lighter than the preceding iteration, without sacrificing any strength of functionality. This package features the entire line—10 cams in total—however, is offering discounts on a wide variety of cams and packages.

The thumb loop makes a huge difference when placing gear under duress. While climbing at Indian Creek, our testers would strategically place cams without thumb loops down low, saving their C4s for higher when they had to contend with the mega pump. The stems on the C4 are also rigid enough that in a pinch, you can just shove them in a parallel crack without even pulling the triggers.

The quick draw comment was in comparison to extendable sling cams like the dragons where extending the sling often means you dont require a quick draw. Personally I’ve never really liked the extendable slings as I find them very faffy, especially in winter when they can freeze. The reduced weight of the new C4 is the most noticeable difference when you first pick them up. All the materials that have been used in the construction of the C4 feel solid, and have held up well to rough use so far. This isn’t all that surprising given the C4’s reputation as a solid, well-built unit. My old rack of C4s still have plenty life left in them after years and probably 1000 pitches of winter and summer climbing.

These bad boys outclass the beloved third generation of Black Diamond Camalots, now with a wider trigger for easier handling and the slings have been updated visually for easier identification. The Black Diamond Camalots’ double-axle design allows retraction of larger cam lobes, giving them a much larger expansion range than traditional single-axle units. The gold standard for camming units, the Camalots’ double-axle design allows retraction of larger cam lobes, giving them a much larger expansion range than traditional single-axle units. This Camalot generation isn’t just lighter than the last generation; it’s also more convenient than any cam Black Diamond has ever made.

The new, redesigned Camalot C4 has now upped the ante, considering it’s 10% lighter yet just as durable as before. Plus, it features a modern design that improves on the old tried-and-true Camalots. The cam’s lobes are lighter and more sculpted, optimized for strength to weight, while the slings have a visual update for easier differentiation when racking. And speaking of racking, we’re introducing a new innovative trigger keeper on sizes #4, #5, and #6, that keeps the big guys contracted for compact racking and immediately release when you’re ready to place.

P.S. If BD could add an extendable sling to their cams they would be out of the competition! In 2015 we gave Totem Cams a glowing write-up, praising in particular their high holding power and narrow head width. This review focuses on two new sizes at opposite ends of the range.

For starters, Black Diamond made the larger cams with stiffer stems and the smaller cams with more flexible stems so they all have the same flex; the 6 no longer feels wobblier than the .3. The larger cams have unique trigger keepers that lock the Camalots in a camming position to reduce racking volume, and the keepers detach with a simple pull of the trigger when you’re climbing. Cams with the same color (5 and .5, for example) now come with bi-color slings for easier identification, and the sling’s tags are tucked underneath the shorter bar-tacks for a cleaner look. Black Diamond also redesigned the tread pattern for a new look to commemorate a brand new generation of Camalots.

We’ve also widened the trigger as well for better handling. The world’s best-selling, most trusted cam just got better. And speaking of racking, we’re introducing a new innovative trigger keeper on sizes #4, #5, #6, #7, and #8 that keeps the big guys contracted for compact racking and immediately release when you’re ready to place.
