We often get requests from our customers for a specific hold from a specific set. In our world, we call those holds "marquis holds." These are the holds that route setters will choose first when looking through a box of holds when getting ready to set a problem. They are “the best of the best” from our current line.
Volume #1 features shapes that are easier to hold. Sure, you'll still get crimps, slopers, pinches, jugs, etc.; but they will all be positive so that a beginner will have no problem on them whether on vertical walls or even semi-steep walls. Vol1 can even be a great set for steep walls as well.
We will weigh your set, which you customize, so that it meets a minimum weight. So if we add some really big holds, you will get less holds in number but not in overall weight. Rest assured you are getting exactly, or even more than, what you are paying for.
Note: The photo posted is not the actual photo of the set. It was a set built for a past customer. With all the new shapes we are constantly bringing in, we often add holds you don't even see on the website. We simply can't keep up to speed with replacing the photo continually but we will hook you up with some of the latest and greatest.
