I purchased these for my 40 degree home board, and I think that in fact they would be better suited for a less steep wall. At my angle they become very difficult unless placed on a volume. Also, I was excited to use some of the cool divots as foot holds later in problems, but at the steeper angle using anything but the biggest edges as feet is desperate. Furthermore, throwing to these holds can be a bit painful since they have some sharper, angular features. All in all, they are cool and multi-dimensional holds whose potential would be fully realized in the realm of vertical to 30 degrees overhanging.
