Lost my old #2 friend. Not quite "old" as in rigid stem but single axle.
Is the "new" #2 (double axle) the closest WC replacement? Anyone know any deals? Friends have got a bit more expensive since I bought it last time!
Message me, I've drawn up a old-to-new cam conversion chart, for my own benefit when working this out too! Everything is orientated around BD camelots sizes now.

Off the top of my head, no, the new one will be bigger.
There are very few single axle cams left in medium to big sizes. This table https://rockrun.com/blogs/product-information/cam-size-comparison-chart seems to suggest the new Friend 2 is basically the same size as Camalot 2. DMM units of the same colours having different numbers but are basically the same size as BD and WC of the same colour.
I have a WC Helium Friend 2 (which I think is the same size 2 as the older technical friends), which is roughly the equivalent of the .7 Black Diamond C4 (green), if you wanted to go down that route.
It must have been quite difficult for WC to accept and adopt the BD sizing and colour scheme.
If you decide on the New Friend option I have a size 2 to sell, as well as a size 3. Unused so as new. Let me know if of interest.
It's somewhere around green in Dragon/C4/Totem sizes
Hi Martin; how much would you like for the #2?
The new equivalent size 2 for wc friends is 0.75 (green).
When I reach for it I still think size 2, etc, rather than the new numbers.
Hi - I've sent a message. Hope you can see it.
