Can you guys tell if this is bad or it will influence on its performance? Any feedback would be appreciated.
See picture attached.

Outside of the fact that

DIE!

The cam is in as near perfect working condition as it gets. Wait till you actually use it to see real "bite" marks.

ITS MADE IN CHINA CRAP! IT'S MADE IN CHINA CRAP!

























PS, I'm just kidding. KIDDING! I'd climb, and pitch, on that all day long. I'm making fun of another Supertopo thread that went on too long when BD moved production of Camalots to China.

It will be fine as long as the damaged part of the lobe never touches the rock.

To be safe, you should allow a buffer of about 7mm on either side of the chip.

Check every placement carefully.

My question is;







WHY, did you BITE the Lobe?
You must have Titanium Teeth!

bite mark in one of the lobes

Yep, this turned out to be a tough love thread.

Either that, or like fighting with Mike Tyson.

Dip it in your chalk bag for added grip before using. You'll be fine.

After close inspection of that images I am wondering why no one is talking about the micro cracks I see developing. The bite is no big deal, but those micro cracks are for real.

I say the only way to tell is to plug it in and take a real whipper on it.

Then see if you can still see that 'bite mark' over the ones gained from real use.

Luckily I was able to "Walk it Off" if you know what I mean.

Of course the damaged part won't ever touch the rock....it's not there anymore!
