        Can take some getting used to

        Comments about Trango Big Bros:

        These can take some getting used to, but in good placements they are more than bomber. They don't stick in flares or cracks that are too irregular, but in parallel spots, they fit PERFECTLY and don't take long to place.

        After placing it, just give it a big whack on the top of the tube in the direction of pull, you'll hear it set and you're solid.

        Comments about Trango Big Bros:

        Big Bros are a wonderful thing to have below you when you are slithering up some offwidth that is begging to spit you out. I mean some of the placements have been so good it almost feels like cheating. If you climb chimneys and feel like you need some pro these are your only weapons. Offwidths, they are a must. The only two drawback are that they really are unstable in flared placements and they take a little longer to place when you are first learning. Other than that....these guys are BOMBER!

        Comments about Trango Big Bros:

        I have found that when using the BigBros there is a certain time and place for them. If you were to carry a cam to replace the big bros it would be HUGE and you could'nt do it. The placement on the bigbro takes some getting use to. I would place it and test it a few times before using it as pro on a lead. It can be placed wrong rendering it useless. I do like the range that they allow you to protect and if placed properly can be bomber.
