A few years ago I was really into sports climbing but since then I've gotten fat and lazy. I really do miss climbing with friends so a few weeks ago I started getting back into shape and decided to make a low-hanging beam that runs across my work-room into a training beam but I needed to start at the beginning, once again; and these holds are PERFECT (8 Beginner Hangboard Hold). I'm not just writing this for the $5 credit... they really are amazing holds. Let me tell you why... they are strong and well-made, their grip is not too aggressive nor too smooth, this set offers a range of grips, the set is reasonably priced, they are a perfect hand-fit for a man who wears medium size gloves who is wanting beginner's holds, and I picked the exact color I wanted (I'm not gonna hang clown-colored holds in my adult house). I didn't think I was gonna like these so much but now I'm thinking about adding a few sets throughout the house... my wife says that's not going to happen... IT'S GONNA HAPPEN.
