What are your holds made of?
While our quality is great, aesthetically it's slightly lower than big box hold producers, but it's close. The strength and durability is just as high. The main reason our holds are so cheap is we operate out of our home doing small batch holds with almost no overhead costs.
However, because we are small batch and small business, we do ship items that have minor cosmetic issues. This could be a small dot of another color on your hold (usually no larger than pin sized), a hold that has very minor surface imperfections, or a hold that might have a small piece of dirt, dust or even pet hair embedded in it. We do care about quality and all of these examples would only ship if it's very minor. Bigger imperfections get sold at a discount!
The way we make our holds is usually different than most, because we 3D print the models first we have to add texturing agents to the design after 3D printing and then create the mold from that.
This results in texture made from positive bumps versus negative. In other words regular climbing holds typically have little bumps or bubbles inside the hold while ours have them on the outside. Your hand really won't be able to tell the difference though. The good thing is, you can sand our holds down a bit if you want a smoother surface. You can't do that with other holds!
Our holds are made from Polyurethane Resin, the recommend resin for climbing holds. The resin has a tensile strength of 3,000 psi (pounds per square inch) or about 20,685 kPA. Even our smallest foot holds are about half a cubic inch so capable of holding almost 1,500 lbs.
Our holds are made of Polyurethane Resin and dye (unless you order Eggshell white). We add a washer to every bolt on hold that becomes part of the hold and increases the safety and stability of the hold.
