The ultimate 4 cam unit is back! Aliens go where no other cam will fit. These babies are the the standard for any trad climbers rack. Aliens are now produced in Spain by Fixe Hardware and are UIAA tested.

I got into climbing right as the CCH fiasco occurred. My mentor in trad (and later big wall) climbing recommended Aliens for my small protection, but few could be found in retail settings, so I went with Metolius TCUs for my first set of small cams and MasterCams for my second set. I have been happy with both, but I decided to take advantage of CCG's awesome deals and get a set of aliens in preparation for a couple of big wall climbs I planned.
That out of the way... These are amazing. They are worth every penny and definitely live up to the hype. I have never had a small cam feel so solid in aid placements as these. The trigger action is very smooth, and the sheath over the cable and retraction apparatus prevents the lobe retraction problems MasterCams have when loaded in some horizontals. They are lightweight, easy to place, and solidly constructed. As soon as you guys start selling the offsets, I'm buying a set of those from you, too.
