The shapes in this set feel like you're climbing something in a sci-fi movie. If you set them as straight down pulls, they are really good. But when you turn them out as side pulls and underlings, they become these alien-like, super positive pinches. The dripstone style gives your fingertips little bumps and ribs to catch on to, so there's not just one way to hold them. The design shines through when they get highlighted with chalk.
