Excellent Set
I have this set on my treadwall which is angled at 35 degrees past vertical.  These holds at the angle feel extremely positive.  I love them for running laps on and finishing out a training session.  One of my favorite Atomik sets.

Pull out (overhanging), not down (vertical)
These are very interesting holds.  They really are best suited for overhanging terrain for sure.  You get 1 to 1-1/2 finger pads behind them which is a lot for a crimp.  This means on vertical the low profile nature of these holds kind of feels like it traps your fingers between the hold and the wall.  A "newbie" climber using these on vertical should be cautious if they plan on burying their fingers in them as the move up.  A foot slip in this situation could sting a little on the fingers.  So, the solution is, don't set them on vertical terrain :-)  On overhangs they are sweet, sweet, sweet.  Definite finger strengthening.

almost too sharp
These are definitely for walls 30 degrees or steeper, preferably steeper. They're a liiiiitle sharp on our 30 degree but it's been good for my skin. They are really more jug like to me then crimps and that's coming from a noob. If you have a 45, these would be great for warm up or intermediate routes.

Good Holds but Expected Much Harder
These are good comfortable warmup holds for my 45 degree home woody.  However, calling these crimps is misleading.  They are jugs.  Had I known these were jugs and not crimps I would not have bought them.  In summation, good holds; misleading name and description.

Not crimps!
We got 5 of these for our 40 degree wall as part of the 100 steep wall set.  They're not really crimps - more like uncomfortable jugs. We still use them for side-pulls and underclings, but I probably wouldn't buy them again.

Made overhang beginner friendly
These holds are my go to warm up holds.
They are set up to feel like jugs and are perfect for side pulls and underclings on my 30 degree wall.
My favorite set of holds ever bought so far. Made my wall very beginner friendly even though it’s mostly over hang
