Rated5out of5byCrack seekerfromIndustry standardThe industry standard for SLCDs. These things are sort of the jack of all trades. Not the lightest unit, or the one with the best expansion range in class, but they are durable, easy to place, and don't have any significant drawbacks that one often has to put up with in ultralight or super-expansive cams. Trigger operates smoothly. After a few falls on some of the units at weird angles, the stems as still straight and trigger wise are in good shape. Would definitely buy these again, though I'll probably never have to.

Rated5out of5byDrRocksofromStandardBlack Diamond C4's have for awhile been the standard in Cams. They are durable and reliable. I would recommend C4's down to the .5 size before going with another brand such as Metolius or Alien. C4's are great in the larger sizes. REI's return policy can't be beat.

Rated5out of5byEric the Boulder bouldererfromIndustry Standard- BomberJust like all Black Diamond gear, the C4's work exactly as stated and designed. When placed properly, I've never heard of one failing. The color does get scratched, but that's to be expected with climbing. I'd recommend getting a Neutrino set of biners, since the C4's and the Neutrinos are the same colors. Lastly: If these fail, it's most likely due to user error, not gear failure. Be safe and take a class or learn from someone with tons of experience!
