Now that I have 400+ holds on my homewall, I'm getting pickier about what I want. I sought out this set specifically because I wanted jugs that didn't wreck my skin when putting in long enduro circuits getting ready for sending season. Mission accomplished! The Atomik 2 texture is where it's at. Added bonus is that the hold's shape forces a more open hand grip, which is easier on the tendons. The holds are still positive on my 45 deg wall, and are excellent for lots of long, reachy, static moves. Exactly what I wanted!
