I acquired my Camp 97 from J. Tsang in 2017.
The Camp 97 is a round tuber. It is turned from aluminum alloy and anodized with a speckled pattern. Mine is 50 mm. long, 50 mm. wide, 37 mm. high, and weighs 50 g. It uses an accessory cord keeper.
My Camp Tuber is screened with "CAMP 97.1," possibly indicating the date and month of manufacture.
Aside from the rope running toward the center, which wasn't a real problem, I don't mind Tubers. While they have largely been superceded by belay tube, they established the working principle and still can serve well. A nice feature is that the friction can be changed before use by simply turning the tuber over.
