Me and a mate are about to start making and selling them, we will be selling them at a lower price than others. How many were you after?

yeh i'd be keen on buying some 2nd hand ones or cheap new ones .. the other alternative i've been looking at is biting the bullet and shelling out some cash for those uncarved block holds so i can particpate in the virtual woody idea.. have you seen this? It's a great idea.. My woody that I'm building is the same specs (except adjustable) so would be pretty worthwhile i reckon..
Anyone else done this?

Alright we should have a pretty good range in 3 weeks the reason being is that we have to make the molds then pour them and wait for them to set. Hopefully we will be on the market before Hardrock! Anyway Ive got some lovely crimpers

Of course chris, there would need to be double and triple checks of the holds. I suppose i could find some time to test them....for safety's sake....

Anyone know what happened to the holds and moulds that vinnie day was playing around with months ago? They were really cool holds and textured great

Not to put anyone off, but before your spending hard earned dollars I would recommend checking out the shapes / texture / finish of the holds when they are available. Cheaper doesn't necessarily mean better.
Disclaimer: In no way is this a reflection on climb monkeys products, but there have been quite a few companies over the years making holds, and most have come up short in some or all of the above requirements.

Just concerned the number of people putting orders product unseen. I have no vested interest either way, I have just seen alot of substandard holds come and go that's all. I guess it comes down to the old motto 'buyer beware'.

Are they the ones who determine if the supplier was on bad drugs when they produced the product?

Climb Monkey. Don't probably need to go as far as sending out samples. Just when you have made the sets, take pictures, put it all into a word document. Create a pdf document (free pdf compiler at http://www.pdf995.com/download.html ) and send it out to prospective customers to get an idea of the shapes at least. Course texture can be sorted with sandpaper.

Kudos to you. It's hard work making holds so I hope your venture works for you. There is definitely a niche in the market for good shapes at a good price.

Dalai,
Buyer beware mate !! If climb Monkey wants to send samples sweet !!! I know a number of poeple that would like a sample, Me, girlfriend, her mum and dad both climb, my mum and dad, my grandparents still crank pritty hard ,my brother, his girldfriend and my cat and dog both get out a fair bit .....hehehe

Nah Climb Monkey sample not nessesary, just post a few photo's and if your in Vic then fair chance i'd pop over for a looksee first, or wait for the thumbs up from other climbers.... These things always work best from a "word of mouth" thing....

Cheers
Chris : )
