        Product was shipped and received in a timely manner. As a new climber to the sport, i'll get a lot of use out of the board. Do you research, this board kept coming up in many message boards as one of the best. It was missing one wood screw, but they are easy to acquire.

          Comments about Detroit Rock Climbing Company V5.12 Hangboard:

          I purchased this hangboard to stay in shape while recovering from an acl injury. I have been climbing for about three years now, and would say my skill level is v5 bouldering, and 5.11 sport. I had not climbed in a month when I began using this product, and the texture was a little aggressive the first several uses. Once my skin toughened back up after a week of use, the texture was perfect. I use very little chalk to keep the board clean, and to keep the texture consistent. I have been using it for about a month now, and have seen huge progress in tendon and muscle strength. Initially I struggled to hold on to the the smallest flat holds in the middle, but now I can do three finger (each hand) pull ups on them. The largest jug holds are a little smaller than what you would see on a metolius hangboard, but the good texture makes up for that. The only downside to this hangboard, which seems to be a common complaint, is that the slopers are so close together, it can get uncomfortable. With this one flaw, I would rate this board a 9 out of 10 and recommend it to anyone looking to get a lot stronger, and progress past V5 and 5.12.

            This hangboard has helped me push through the 11's and ready for 12's. The systematic design of in-cut / jug, straight edge, and slopper makes this board ideal and simple for training. Highly suggest getting this board if your looking for something to push your fingers to the next level.

            Great variety, but...

            Pros

            • Good variety
            • Stays Grippy

            Cons

            • Awkward Slopers
            • Jugs Aren't Very Good

            Best Uses

            • Crimp Strength
            • Pinch Strength

            Comments about Detroit Rock Climbing Company V5.12 Hangboard:

            I really like this board, but the slopers are in a very bad position. When you grab them they make your elbows knock together and after awhile makes your neck sore. If you have been looking for a hangboard with pinches then you should definitely buy this board, but again, if you are hoping for sloper training this board shouldn't be you first choice. The crimps are very good, the variety allows for lots of different training. Over all I would say this board is maybe a 8.5/10

                Comments about Detroit Rock Climbing Company V5.12 Hangboard:

                So I decided to embark on a regimented training period through the winter rather than just noodeling around on the bouldering wall. I researched every available hangboard and decided on the V5.12 because of the dual texture and numerous grip options. After five months of periodization training I'm hanging on to stuff I never could before.
