Feels just like granite crimping outside. These holds are great for finger training. I have them on a 45 degree wall. I can’t imagine setting much easier than v5 with these but these really shine when setting v7+. Some of the more incut holds could easily be set on a steeper wall but be prepared to crimp hard. There is a variety in how incut these holds are, some would be a bit sharp on a more vertical face. The other two sets of granite screw on crimps would be a bit less harsh on less steep walls. Another thing I really appreciate about these holds is that most have well placed thumb catches.
