got this board as a birthday gift (well to be honest from myself) and was the best choice to improve my climbing skills. Just hang it in the bedroom and practice daily and make your grips and crimps stronger. Looks nice int he room and makes me happy. good buy and good build.
"Finger strength is 10x better after a month of workouts!"
The great thing about this training board is the huge array of pocket sizes. You can train as many fingers as you would like as deep as you would like. The slopers on top are great for sloper training. and the big jugs are great for pull-ups. It is also very easy to install and can be hung and ready to train with in 5 minutes! definitely recommend!
Great for when you can't get to the crag. I recently began climbing and this board has greatly increased both my strength and endurance. If you just use their 10 minute workouts once a day you too can reap the benefits of increased strength.
"This hangboard is versatile, and great for any climber looking to train finger strength."
The Metolius Simulator 3D hagdboard is a versatile training board that offers a great amount of different hold types and depths. The workouts can range from beginner, using the larger jug holds and deeper pockets, and gradually increasing to incredibly shallow pockets and flat slopers. The hangboard was very easy to mount, and came with the appropriate screws. Metolious also has training guides online that are tailored for this specific hangboard. Overall, a great training board.
This training board has lots of variations. It is rough on the fingers but so are the holds at the gym. Mounts nice and easy and is very solid. If you're looking to get in some great practice and training at home, I highly recommend this product
Great hang board. A climber shouldn't live in a house without one, really helps you get some finger work going on a day to day basis. The texture isn't as pleasant as a timber one but it's great for building up those calluses. At the very least it's good for pull-ups.
I love this hangboard. It has a variety of sized pockets. I got the white one, but in hindsight I should have bought a colored one because the white is looking a bit dirty. Otherwise, this thing is great. I live in an old apartment, so I couldn't drill this into the wall. to solve this issue I drilled it onto a piece of wood, attached bike hooks to the top, and then hung the hooks on a pull-up bar that hangs in my doorway. Problem solved. I even drilled little hooks onto the wood so I could practice hanging and clipping. :-)
If you're like me, you live out in the woods (Northwest, MT) and there isn't a climbing gym for hundreds of miles. And I don't do ice, so during the winter months I may go long stretches without hitting a good climb.Not to worry, this board has more than enough grips to keep your forearms and back in shape during those long layoffs. As an added benefit over the wood boards, this also keeps your hands in manly condtion. A no-brainer purchase -- especially if you have rewards points.
This board is excellent for building hand, arm, and finger strength but it also works great for pullup-focused workouts in general. You don't have to be a climber to get a lot out of it - it made staying in shape fun again! The only down side is finding a place to drill this thing in, if you're got a nice spot then it's simple to install (even if it is a bit heavy), but it needs some decent support to really stay hung up.
The good:Lots of holds to choose from, great bowed design helps to place less stress on the shoulders/elbows, slopers are great.The bad:The innermost row of holds (not the middle, those are for 1 arm hangs) are too close together to allow proper hanging without injuring the shoulders. The texture destroys skin very quickly. Big and might be hard to find a place to install. Although it has a ton of holds, you don't really need that many, it is mostly a gimmick. Expensive.The verdict:For the same price or less you can get a simpler, easier to use hangboard that won't be as flashy but can still get the job done.
