the US. with the dollar as it is now, especially in large quantities. In oz though, probably flashpoint. they have some cool shapes. don't know aboput prices though.

US: http://www.cheapholds.com - Cheap Holds

OZ: http://www.pitch.com.au/X-es%20Prices.htm - X-es Climbing Holds

Uncarved Block may not be the cheapest Aussie holds but they are definately the best. Friendly shapes (including great slopers), a good fine texture and an awesome finish are all available at http://www.uncarvedblock.com.au/ . And buying over the net couldn't be easier.
As for Xes holds - the price, quite frankly, is about the only good feature. Poor finish, very brittle mix.

Uncarved are very nice holds, but very pricy, Ive got holds from everywhere but alot of the problems on my woodie seem to incorporate the uncarved blocked holds alot. Ive got Xes hols, and havnt had one break and the rough finish can always be fixed with fine grade sand paper.

Also try Star Holds, http://www.starholds.co.nz/, they are nice and in $NZ. But you best bet is to check out the local climbing gyms and ask if they want to sell old holds that they are retiring. in the past ive gotten most retired holds for around $2 when as new they sell for around $8 - $12. Good value I say, though probaly easier in sydney with all teh climbing gyms about.

Just to let you know we have E-GRIPS arriving from the US tommorow, all of these holds will be on-line by the end of the week.

If you want to check these out before that go to www.gthi.com and click on E-Grips logo on the main page.

Hope you find what you need

An informative answer to the question would be - "we have the cheapest holds in Australia... they look/feel like blah ... they cost blah blah blah"

Sorry guys, didn't mean to upset just trying to keep you updated with the latest Pinnacle equipment.

E-GRIPS

Because of the urethane construction, E-Grips are the most durable climbing holds on the market. Great for textured or contoured walls and novice setters! Throw 'em on the ground from the top of your wall; toss them in a bucket without breakage or chipping. Really CRANK them down without the dreaded "snap!" and let the softer back prevent spinning. Like other hold companies they have a Lifetime Warranty. While also unike other companies you will never have to use it.

Example Prices:

Blocky Feet 20 holds $73.50 Retail
Coastal Pockets 10 holds $93.00 Retail

All prices and info will be on-line by the end of the week

Thanks guys

Hi Rod

For the first shipment we have a large range, though if they prove poular will stock everything, also if we haven't got what you need this time we can bring it over for you.

I will try to get them on-line ASAP

By the way hows that rope?

sorry to steal cash from all the manufacturers, but why not wooden holds? on my woody about 2/3rd of the holds are wood and i actually like them better than the plastic ones (and they are good quality plastic holds)

Hey josh you have a woody?? Well have to have some woody seesion on each other boards. Wood holds are good, but time consuming (though generally nicer on the hands.)
