New Black Diamond Ultralight C4 17-Mar-2017 At 10:42:32 PM jrc
So the UL C4s have been subject to one recall ( relating to dodgy rivets. Later examples are free of this issue (apparently).

I had a bit of an adventure on Psychopath the other day when i went to place my new C4 No3 and the wire had come out of the trigger - presumably from the way it was packed neatly (=stuffed in) my rucksack. anyway i got it in and back together later. Looking at a few US forums this is a problem with the No3 particularly, though BD isnt doing much about it.

The No3 (big blue one) has rubber shrouds around the trigger wires cut shorter than those on the 1 or 2 so the trigger wire can come more easily through the trigger hole and come off the hook - itself smaller than standard C4 hooks. The longer shrouds on the 1 &2 mean this is much less likely to happen.

Solution - let BD know if you experience this problem.
inspect the cam before every pitch
in my case ive put a small cable tie through to hold in place. Up to you if you want to do that but i am a bit disappointed at having to use a cable tie to hold together a piece of kit from a world class manufacturer.
