The DMM Dragon cams use a single stem with hot forged cams mounted on a dual axle - this gives a better range than single-axle designs, but DMM have kept Ray Jardine's original 13.75° constant camming angle that maximizes holding power. Extendable, double Dyneema sling saves on quickdraws and reduces the weight of your rack even further.
The DMM Dragon cams use relatively strong springs - this means the units feel slightly harder to retract, but the advantages are worth it: they will sit more securely in placements, they will have improved resistance to being pulled out of low friction placements and they will walk less. The thumb termination uses an aluminum forging that is massively strong, resistant to abuse and crucially allows use of an extendable sling.
Early prototypes used a wire loop but it was found that the Dyneema sling could damage this and the forging is actually lighter than the wire loop it replaced. The stem uses 5.5mm stainless steel wire cover in a hydrolyzed nylon sleeve. The nylon sleeve rotates freely to reduce abrasion damage and gives the units really good flexibility throughout 360°. In addition, DMM have used very short terminations that increase flexibility. Thus when the cams are placed in shallow vertical or horizontal cracks the units are less likely to be levered out of the placement. The trigger bar is made from the same material and is very positive in use, with sufficient relief to offer grip to the sweatiest of fingers.
