This thing weighs a ton. So, make sure that you have a strong surface to mount it on. That being said, there are options galore for gripping. That is all I wanted. Of course, the brand makes sturdy products so no worries there, and Moosejaw was the cheapest I could find it. I bought this just to train my grips and pull up strength at home. It's obviously not a substitute for a gym or real rock, but still, dive in, climb on (says the layman).
""What's that on your wall?" "My beast maker.""
I'm pretty new to climbing so I got this to build up strength and technique over the winter. It's definitely paying off. This board comes with a whole bunch of quick but effective workout routines and not to mention a minor amount of bragging rights.
"Definitely a great purchase. Very happy that I decided to buy this hang board"
A hang board is essential for any climber looking to build and maintain strength during the off season. The simulator offers various holds that range from 3 awesome jugs, a few awesome hand/finger pockets, a couple of shallow crimp rails, and my personal favorite, 2 sets of perfect slopers to hang on too. I would recommend this product to any climber interested in purchasing a hang board... And to the person currently reading this review: I know you are sitting there contemplating purchasing a hang board since you are obviously reading this. Don't fight your inner desire. Go through with the purchase. You won't regret the decision. I can promise you that.
I am an immediate level climber and brought this training board to improve my finger strength as I feel that my progress had become stagnant after climbing for about 1.5 years. This indeed help. I go through the 10 minutes routine once every week to supplement my training. It does not require a lot of time and is efficient.The only problem that I have is on the installation which is really a hassle to me.
Wake up an hang out to start the day! Literally. I don't have to travel out to the rocks to get in some finger and forearm exercises. ( not that I don't want to) This board is awesome and I wish every doorway had one of these over it.
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.
