Sure, they are great for hard sets on a 35-45, but they also shine for fitness training on a 0-20. Get your laps in with the smooth comfy perfection of the Yaniro texture. The radius of these crimps force a closure and body position that will reward even the most seasoned veteran. I appreciate the variety in this set, but for system training, it's nice to have 4-6 sets so that you get multiples of the larger radius grips - because the smalls are hard, even on vert. If you've never experienced the smooth Yaniro texture, this is a good starting set.
