I was just looking into buying a new hangboard and was wondering what everyone thought was a good one to buy. I was looking into getting one of these two:

Any suggestions?

Both are great systems. If you are new to climbing, don't get a training board. Spend your funding on climbing gym time.

Just build your own. Go to Home Depot and look at all the wood stuff. There are so many possibilities for holds.
