Some of my buddy's have been steering away from the heavy weights and doing very high reps light weight they claim to be making gains. Does anyone else out there have any experience with this kind of routine?
Diet dictates "gains" while lifting dictates strength. I switch from 4-6 reps to 10-15 pretty regularly. Keeps me from plateauing.

Their doing reps fast but not so fast as to have poor form and reps of 50 to 100
Wow that is lighter than i thought. But that to me sounds like they are spending a lot of time under tension. Ive found 40 second sets are good for me if use this method. However when i do i only do slow 8 reps over this time so i can use heavier weight.
Do your friends realise that there is more than one type of muscle fiber in the body? If theyr doing high reps over high speeds chnaces are theyr going to activate type 1 muscle fibers (endurance) which will limit growth.
How new are they too lifting?
They have all been training for quite a while but they have been talking to a local trainer who insists you can make gains with this routine
They definately wont be the next arnold with that approach.
I don't think 50 reps plus is necessary, every 4th week i do a deload week and do around 20 reps with a lighter weight, 50 plus is way overkill in my opinion and will just wear your joints out
Yeah I just wondered if anyone else had heard of this I questioned it when it was suggested

Anyhow, going to failure, even at 50-100 reps, should activate both fast and slow twitch muscle fibers, just not as effectively as low rep workouts.
