false Beastmaker Micros / ビーストメーカーマイクロズ
One of the (few) complaints we hear about our fingerboards is that there are no really small, nasty crimps. We designed the fingerboard to be as comfy as possible to train on, which meant that we made even the smallest holds fairly rounded.
To address this we have created the Micros. These tiny edges are designed to test your crimp strength to the max. They come as a set of 6 holds in 3 pairs, 10mm, 8mm, 6mm in depth.
Usually really tiny holds tear the skin and are quite unpleasant to train on so we have been very careful to make the profile as comfy as possible. Of course crimping really small holds is always going to be fairly unpleasant, but we have spent a while testing various sizes of edges with various profiles and we think we have nailed it with these.
We have used beech as it is a strong and hard wood which won't wear over time so the texture will remain the same session after session. It also looks lovely too!
Just hanging off the 6mm edges is quite a challenge - but we will send a special prize to the first person to do a 1 armer on one!
