Don't believe all that hype.

This IS how brainwashing starts

Great video, very understated. 

Jim didn’t include his historic route in his own guidebook—“not that big of a deal”


Humble fellow.

Been waiting almost a year now for my VG 9 as well. Ordered early December 2019. As far as I know Tom has never screwed anyone over, the cams just take a while to show up. In the meantime I have a couple Shiney BD cams to play with.

And on that note, I had my brand new-never placed BD #8 fail on me. One of the rivets popped off where the trigger wire to cam lobe attachment takes place.

Tom makes FISH look hyper responsive.... for all anyone knows he seems dead for about 11 months out of the year.


Hahaha!  Well played sir.  Jaybro, didn't someone already have one of the new BD 7s (red) fail on them? They tested real low in the strength dept. The #12 was like 5KN. Which is @ toprope fall territory,  body weight ++.

There was a discourse on Bill Ramsey upthread. This ties in nicely with that.
