Double, no, sextuple your placement ranges.
Each Supercam in this Metolius Package has twice the placement range than standard cams, thereby adding six placement ranges to your trad climbing quiver. Not only do the asymmetric lobes extend placement ranges, they also provide more stability that the standard symmetric design. Wider cam faces and an optimized camming angle give the Supercam a superior performance on softer rock like sandstone.
Metolius also equipped each Supercam with a range finder that helps beginners see the difference between a secure placement and a not-so-secure one. Radical new spring technology works with the U-shaped body for unparalleled control while placing and cleaning. Machined cam stops help the Supercam act as a stopper for versatile protection, and the Kevlar triggers stay strong when you need to fish out over-cammed pieces with a nut tool.

Great range to weight ratio!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Just used on Wheat Thin in City of Rocks where you need some big pieces at the top and to set up the belay. Nice to have the range without the weight to haul up.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These things are the alpine climbers work horse!
You're headed deep into the Wind Rivers - you're at the trailhead, gears laid out, you're staring at the topo - #4 CAMALOT REQUIRED - you read the map - 12 miles - uphill, both ways - You can either decide to leave the whiskey behind and take the #4 or run her out.
Fear no longer -
The supercam is just that - SUPER.
The range is second to none. Fits in the sizes, and keeps your buns outta the dirt on that wideness.
Don't fret - Supercam is here!
