Havenít ever lost a cam by fixing or otherwise.
Have successfully retrieved fixed cams several times as booty. Mostly HB quadcams.
Have successfully retrieved fixed cams a couple of times belonging to climbing mates to return to them.
Have once successfully retrieved one of my own cams that became fixed by my inexperienced second at the time trying to retrieve it and jamming it!

None of them were Omega Pacific, and none of the irretrievable fixed cams that Iíve climbed past over the years (relatively uncommon in my experience), were that brand either.

The first time I ever came across a fixed cam was on the East Face Route of Mt Crookneck in Qld in about 1990 - unlawful to climb there now...
There were two in close proximity on the thin traverse; one was broken off at its head, and the other (a flexible BD friend), was beginning to rust due length of time it had been there.
I couldnít believe the $ value that had been left behind and unsuccessfully tried to retrieve it.
