Thanks for the feedback guys. Getting quotes from City Rock and Mountain Persuits. Glad these cams are still available - sounds like they're hard to come by in the states...

I wonder if these incidents had a hand in the Alien's demise?

It seems they were quite legendary in the small sizes. I've been thinking of grabbing one or two while Mountain Pursuits still have them since I have nothing smaller than a Camalot #.5, and according to a few experienced opinions BD isn't so great in the smaller sizes.

However the above incidents makes me feel a bit uneasy about them...
