I've been bouldering in a gym for a while now and i want to get out onto the real thing. should i get a big expensive pad or can i get by on something smaller and cheaper?
If you don't want to spend the cash check out BD's other smaller pads like the Impact. That's what I have and I love it. Also, look at Metolius pads like the Cheap Bastard and Fat Bastard. However, if you see yourself bouldering much in the future, buy this pad. It's fantastic. Especially, if you're only going to have one pad, get this thing. It's huge, thick, and burly.
