I bought this set about 2 weeks ago (new retail price is $30, which makes it even sweeter). I absolutely LOVE these things. First, they make quick and easy workouts reasonable. If you only have 10-15 minutes to spare, you can do the full recommended routine--which is still really tough unless you climb pretty frequently. Second, they offer much more variety than a hangboard in a much smaller and cheaper package. While the sheer variety of holds is actually smaller, once you combine it with limitless grip angles and widths, you have nearly infinite options. I found that after only a few workouts on these, I've actually improved my contact strength and went right back to bouldering as well as I ever had--despite taking almost 9 months off for a broken toe in the offseason! Highly recommended.
