To a non climber a climbing hold might just seem like every other hold, the shape and colour might vary but they do not see the difference. But the differences in quality and price can be huge. Instead of saving money, we would really suggest to look into the highest quality brands and products, because after-all the goal is not to build the cheapest routes / boulders but to build something that allows you to train hard and progress injury free.

Furthermore, the shape of climbing holds plays a big roll in whether they can be used for effective training or pose too high a risk of injury. In the past for example, manufacturers focus was to replicate artificial climbing holds that would look and feel like real rock, with the purpose of simulating it as good as possible. After-all, plastic is there to train for the actual rock. Today, this has changed and holds are designed in an ergonomic way in order to reduce risk of injury when gripping them. Prior to this, holds where sharp, with weird edges because those were the shapes you encountered in nature, but the cases of tendonitis, capsule injuries and other finger injuries rose drastically. This was obviously counter productive to the purpose of designing these plastic holds. You cannot progress if you are injured. 

The colours of the holds are irrelevant to their quality but one should still think about what too choose. If you have a small wall you might want as many different colours as possible to be able to set as many routes / boulders as possible and still be able to distinguish them. 

The choices are endless and difficult today so contact our Customer Service or send us a mail to help you choose the right product for your needs.
