Get ridiculously pumped and save your tips by training on the Metolius Wood Grips.
In addition to the fact that Metolius Wood Grips don't need a highly toxic process to take shape and look damn cool, their smooth surface also saves skin during training. Get this 5 Pack to save your own. Because of the smooth texture, Metolius Wood Grips have less friction than regular holds. This makes them very tough to hang onto, which makes you squeeze harder, which makes you get pumped silly, which makes you stronger.
- Q & A
What you see is not what you get...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
In the product photo it looks like the wood has been sanded with extra-fine sandpaper, given sprayed with a satin varnish, then very lightly "sanded" again until they're extremely smooth and shiny.
Well, that's not the case.
What you get are pieces of wood that were last sanded with a medium to fine sandpaper, and do not have any finish applied.
So while the wood grips in the photo look like they'd be extremely hard to hold onto, the finish on the grips/holds you get would make them a little bit more challenging than the typical composite holds.
Now I said "would make them" because the shapes and sizes of the holds/grips you get bear no resemblance to what is shown in the photo.
The shapes are *very* easy to grasp and the sizes range from full hand size at the small end to Hindenburg-size at the upper end.
They really are so large that you could make them baby-bottom smooth and they'd still be easy to hold onto.
Save your money and buy a standard composite material hold set.
