Black Diamond has something in the production works!

Kind of looks fun, and Makes me wonder if I should buy any C3s that have overlapping sizes with the X4s (I need something that is in the C3 size range...) . I like the cable 'armor' that they're using.

These look pretty rad! To answer your question (from a bd person):

The X4s will not replace the C3s. More than likely you'll find yourself running a mixed rack of micro cams: mostly C3s and a couple of X4s for specific placements where the flexible stem will really shine. There will be six sizes, covering 8.4mm to 41.2mm. No plans for an extendable sling. Head width is not quite as narrow as the C3s
