those look interesting, seems like they'de be sort of limiting in terms of smaller edges though. Sort of hard to tell. I assume you've had first hand experience with the product, how easy/difficult is it to change the position of the grip, it seems like it would be a pain to do that during, say, a brief rest phase between sets of repeaters when you what to actually rest instead of fiddle with the rings. outside of providing a few more options for open hand/pinch positions, why am I paying 70 dollars for these when I could get a hangboard with more options for smaller holds for he same, if not less money?
The crimper is an ellipse, that depending orientation, can be very small - smaller than I can hang on to but no matter how small the surface gets, it isn't painfully sharp. For me changing the sling for different grip positions coincides perfectly with my rests between different exercises. Hang board doesn't offer adjustable angles and doesn't offer the ability to do dips/press-ups. Also, I can hang these from my pull-up bar - no holes in the wall. :-)
