Home wall route setting dream!
Wow, these are fun! They have a great range of difficulties. The most positive in the set feels almost as easy as a mini-jug to me. The most difficult is quite slopey and sets at what feels like V4-5 (maybe harder) on my 20 degree wall. Each hold has an easier side and a harder side, so you can really dial in the difficulty well. You will be able to make these as difficult as you want, but are also great for a newer climber like me (V3ish so far). The less abrasive texture gives some purchase, but you really have to rely on generating pressure to grip the hold… great for grip practice.

Lastly, the size of these holds is a huge selling point for home walls where real estate is limited. The rails are large enough to provide variety from standard jugs, crimps, and pinches… but are also the perfect size to not interfere with neighboring t-nuts. I have 72 t-nuts per panel, and these easily fit next to some of my largest holds.

Perfect Texture and Shaping
These are my favorite to set with on my home wall. The texture is tight and has just enough grip, like very compact stone or say 200 grit sandpaper.  

They work best on my 20 and 30 degree walls. On a major overhang these would be exptrememly challenging.  

If you need a set of pinches, this is where I would start.

Big and matchy
Definitely big enough for hand matches, and enough variety of angles to make them varied in difficulty. We've used them for feet as well in a couple of balance-oriented problems.

Really spiced up my home wall!
Got these for my vertical wall and they've given a nice boost to the difficulties. They are large enough for hand matching, and placing them at different angles allows me to create much more interesting routes. Texture is pretty smooth on these so don't expect them to be super grippy - but to me that's an added bonus.

Great shapes and texture
For home wall, size of the holds is very critical since we only have this much space. This set gives you a lot of room and variety ways to place fingers while they don't take much space on the wall because they are rails. They are not small, size is there. But they can easily fit into tricky spots for example between too big holds or along several screw-ons. And the new texture feels so great. This is my first set of the new texture. I am considering this texture for future orders.
