by fromHaven't found one as versatile as this one So I have used many hangboards and this is one of the only ones I have found that has all types of holds whether it is small, medium, large edges to slopers and jugs. It is a really nice board. Other boards that I have used I always feel are missing some of the holds needed to do a complete work out. Of course you could easily solve that by buying more ;). Both me and my girlfriend have this one and love it! Note: If you are planning on buying the backboard that goes with this check the stud spacing where you want to hang it first. For me I have a wider spacing and the backboard would have been too short to fasten to all four studs. I just went out and got a piece of pine board for ~$5 to use as mine.

by fromHanging out with my training board I can't complain. The material is solid and promotes good grip. The holds give all the variety I'd expect...great product to form the centerpiece of a mini-climbing gym.

by fromMetolius Simulator 3D Training Board by I use this product about three times per week, and have been using it for approximately one month now. I've seen dramatic improvement in my grip strength and endurance. I would have rated this purchase at 5 stars if it weren't for the mounting instructions needing a bit more information to be carefree for the layman. It was no problem for me to make a custom backboard instead of buying the Metolius supplied one, and for me it was necessary due to the framing in my apartment being of poor craftsmanship. The screws that came with my training board were not all the same size, and I think it would be helpful if they had an exploded view showing where the long or short screws were to be located. As for fit and function, this thing works great!

by fromThis board will make you humble I mounted this board in my backyard in a covered patio. It's mounted directly into a 7"x5" horizontal wood beam so no plywood and stud finding were necessary. The board is made out of a similar plastic compound of which most indoor gym holds are made. It's a very solid product. By solid, I mean it feels nearly indestructible. I just tried out the entry level 10-minute workout that's posted on Metolius' website. There are also intermediate level and advanced level 10-minute routines. The entry level routine was very humbling. I foresee myself using it to train for at least a couple years as some of the holds are very challenging. I have no complaints nor could I find anything no so great about it.

by fromExcellent Training Tool This is an excellent tool for the days you cant get out to the crag. There's no substitute for actually climbing on real rock, but this is a great option to help increase strength. I use mine every day, and aside from a little difficulty in mounting it, I have no complaints whatsoever.

by fromSolid Addition to Training Regimen I love having this as an option for training in between gym days. Focusing your entire workout on pull-up and dead hang strength translates to quick gains in the gym. I considered smaller boards, but I went with this one for its range of holds. With the variety, you can move through progressively smaller pockets and edges and still do the same workout. If you haven't climbed much yet, you might find it a little rough on your hands, but you'll get used to it. And, that grip is very beneficial on the slopers.

by fromFantastic I just got this hangboard for Christmas and its great! I had no problem mounting it, (it comes with directions, you must get some plywood and some decking screws). It is great and very durable. There are a variety of holds to help work on different fingers, muscles, etc. overall this is a fantastic hangboard, way better than the others online (my friends have some).
