The hold sets work but I would get the holds from a different company. Also check out Atomik's web site, they have a hole thing on holds based hang boards.

On a hang board note, my gym has 10-12 different hang boards from 4-5 different companies. We work with people of all different abilities and we find that the Grilito from Revolution works the best for beginner-upper intermediate (not that it's not good for advanced there are just better advanced boards). The V5.12 or the Iron Palm from So Ill would be my choices for intermediate-advanced. Bang for the buck I'd go with the V5.12 though the blister board from So Ill is $42 and I have to say I'm impressed with it for what it is. If I was on a budget, I'd get one.

My personal opinion, if you get Metolius holds you will be disappointed . The quality is shite and the texture sucks for training on. Metolius makes a lot of great gear, plastic holds are not on that list. The Wood holds, campus rungs and wood hang boards would be the only things I would get from them hold wise.
