- Q & A
Lots of good features
Bought this thinking I was only going to be able to practice crimping. Turns out there is a HARD sloper in the middle and good pinches on the sides. Lots of versatility and the price can't be beat
Perfect Training Tool
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've had a Metolius hang board for a long time, and just updated to this one. It has pockets for every skill level, and if it's anything like my last one, it will last for years. I think these are a must have for any climber. For the price, you can't go wrong.
What's the difference between this and the project board?
Good question. I'd like to know too.
Well, look at the pictures. It clearly has different holds. Has the crimpier hold in the top middle, and the outsides have the variable pinches. I just bought the project and wish I had seen this board, because it's nearly the same price but appears to have many more options than the project.
