what's the go with the beastmaker 1000 slopers? 7-Dec-2018 At 9:00:42 PM robbio
Got myself a beastmaker 1000.

Impressed with the craftmanship, disappointed with the slopers...

The central 20 degree sloper is doable but feels too narrow for both hands. Now i know i'm weak as piss but the 35 degree sloper is so undoable it's not funny. Even if i make myself 20kg lighter via a counterweight it i still don't get close to hanging from it. To add salt into the wound my partner (a non-climber) can hang off em with ease...

I have mounted it to a 30mm thick timber, the top of this timber sits flush with the top of the slopers, i am half tempted to modify the hangboard by rounding off both the sloper AND the timber behind it to make a sloper i can actually use!

But i just spent $200 on it so i'm hesitant to f$%k with it just yet.

Has anyone out there done any modifications to their wooden hangboard and not regretted it?

Any recommendations for other hangboards with good easy slopers?

I am thinking of hanging a 150-200mm diameter log and use this as a long uniform sloper to hang from.

Anyone done this or something similar?
