C4s or you'll buy twice, slightly heavier than the Tech Friends...but bigger expansion range - meaning each cam will fit in more places than just about any other cam (barring the Link Cams). The most solid feeling build you can find. Quality... The onyl improvement I can suggest to BD is the extendeble slings you find on the Rock Empire/Trango cams. I love 'em.

BD C4s all the way.

Ditto Pierre Jouberts comments.
The action is really smooth and the placements solid.

I very seldom if ever get my BDs stuck.
I once used a new rack of the latest WC friends and I nearly got 5 or 6 of them stuck, and it wasn't even a hard route.
