As someone who has big “Jimmy Dean” sausage fingers, I sometimes struggle to close the crimp—wrap the thumb over—on smaller plastic crimpers, much as I love crimping. I just can’t get all four of my pads on there, or can’t get enough tip-flesh on to comfortably close the grip without feeling like I might tweak. For this reason, I’ve really been digging these 5 Small Golfus Edges Set #3: They have an ergonomic, boomerang-like curve to them that offers plenty of grabbable arcs, plus a series of ridges and dimples that mean my fingertips can squish out and deform/conform to the shape. And I can still close the thumb—or go half-crimp and leave the thumb out if I want. At 3/4” deep there’s plenty of room to get my pads on there—these are very comfortable mid-range crimpers; I have some on a flat wall at 10 degrees overhanging and some on volumes mounted on a 20-degree wall, and they’re a key part of circuits in the 5.12-on-up range, with sequences incorporating them checking in around V1-V4/5 or so at these angles. At 30 degrees and beyond, I imagine you’d be looking at V6 on up to double digits. The texture is tight—fine-grained and skin-friendly, with just enough “bite-back” that they’ve worked well even in a cold, dry garage. The holds seasoned quickly with a few passes with chalked hands, and I have yet to dry-fire. These holds are mega, and the dimpling represents a very cool new direction in shaping!
