What holds to buy?

Just built a wall in my backyard and i want to buy about 100 holds to start with. Ive seen a lot of starter packs at nicros, climb it, atomik etc. I just want personal opinions on starter kits or maybe other hold companys to go through. Price is a huge factor and i prefer holds that come with the correct size bolt (which is making me lean towards nicros) Climb it holds looks the best but are way to expensive. Any insight is appreciated

Three Ball has some good shapes at good prices. Also, Element is having a sale, 40% off all holds.

I've gotten a few of their holds and have found the texture, design, and finished product to be very good.

If you like the shapes then go for it.

Edit to add: here's a few reviews for you:

We just bought a big batch of Element holds for the gym back in April, and I'll just say they're awesome. Tons of texture, cool shapes, and bright colors (which, in my opinion, is good.) They're very reasonably priced and there's a lot of variety already. If they still do the free sample pack do it, 8 bucks shipping for 5 holds is a great deal. But I would say just go for it, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

If price is the huge factor then Synrock is the best choice. You will always get at least twice the holds for the money than anywhere else. And they "feel" better than anything else.

That looks like a great place to start.

Make sure you have a few friends over to help set. Having to work someone else's route/problem is key to keeping it interesting.
