Summary:
Bought this cam because it was cheap, I didnt totally trust it as it was so cheap but I still used it. A few days a go I took a massive fall (Factor 1, head just brushed the ground), this cam was the only piece of protection used and it held! It's now my favorite cam, I feel like framing it! Despite such a huge fall, the cam still functions correctly despite being loaded over an edge.

Summary:
I bought the full set of 8 (5 robots and 3 micros). These things are ridiculously close to the metolious 4 camming units. Although they don't have the most flexible stems out there, I find that they do they job very well. The way the slings are set up, you can kind of "adjust" them to achieve a longer length. Don't be fooled by the price, these cams are quality.

Quick delivery

Summary:
These things are bomber! I was very skeptical about howthey would hold, due to the extremely low price that I bought them at. They are a lot like the Metolius and Trango cams. The only thing that I dont like is that the sewn runner in each of the cams is a different color rather than the actual aluminum like in the Black Diamond or Trango style cams. However they have saved my skin in many dicey situations!

Reviewed by: kyhangdog ,  Climber , from Ashland, KY USA

Summary:
Bought five Rock Empires to double up on sizes of Wired Bliss cams. Did a lot of research on Rock Empire, due to their low price. The only thing low about these cams is the price, because these are bomber. I have some Metolius cams, which are basically identical to the Robots. The Metolius seem heavier and a little more rugged, but perform exactly the same. The largest size does walk a little and I don't use it before a crux, but for the price they rock.

Similar Products Used:
Camalots, Wired Bliss, Metolius, Aliens, and Clog cams.

Summary:
These cams are changing the way we all think of cam buying. Where else can you get a great cam for 30 bucks? I've placed the micros and I love them. They're every bit as good as metolious, and the new cam stops put them on a level with much more expensive cams. It will be good to see what our overpriced American counterparts think of cheap cams becoming available for us US climbers

Metolious, Camalots, Trango Flex (Also a Hudy product)
