This hangboard is sastifactory, but is a long way from the quality and versitility that other boards provide. Here's what I like: The top of the board is fine. The 2 jugs are good for pullups and the slopers are pretty nice. But here is what I dislike: The two top pockets are practically useless - they aren't deep enough to effectively train. The mini-pockets at the bottom are decent, but I found that is was difficult to isolate training to your two middle & ring fingers. Friction becomes a slight problem as well. You need to chalk up often and early with this device. I prefer the Metolius boards to that of Franklin. However, the pricing is pretty good, and you will improve your climbing with the product.
