I am a relatively novice climber and bought this to develop finger strength. It's a lovely looking product and does look nicer than some resin boards. It was easy to mount and sits nicely out of the way so is not too obvious. The wood texture provides less grip/friction than resin boards so, as a beginner, I did struggle to perform some exercises. However, I found that this could be overcome by doing offset hangs or pull-ups using the jugs as well as a pocket (these kind of tips are also in a neat little booklet that came with the board). I would definitely recommend this product, particularly as it is less prone to shred your skin than a resin board. I love the look and feel of it and am enjoying every use.
I did quite a bit of research before buying this and it ticked all the boxes. It's small enough and good looking to be able to install in a family home without looking totally out of place. The engineering is great and it feels really smooth to the touch. There are a number of different depth pockets as well as a sloper at the top and 2 jugs and you can also use it for pull ups. I much prefer the look to the plastic/resin models and would totally recommend it.
