    The C3 design works great in the correct orientation. Due to the stiffness of the body, it can be torqued out of position if the direction of the force is against the side. If placed properly, it's a bomber piece.




    I've been a little skeptical of the C3's and been content with TCU's, Mastercams and Aliens for the little stuff. But succumbing to extensive peer-pressure, I have been racking up a few lately and have been very happy with their ease of placement and apparent stability. I have not noted any torque issues or sticky triggers, and in general the C3's seemed a little easier to remove than the TCU's after having been weighted. Speaking of TCU's, I have fairly big mitts and find that the C3's are much easier to grab for dicey spots where quick placement is desired. Overall it's looking like C3's have earned a permanent place on my rack and have perhaps bumped TCU's to a back-up role.
