/ First bouldering pad?
The climbing factory ground hog http://www.climbingfactory.co.uk/products.html
and any other suggestions for around the same price.
I am really interested in hearing opinions on the climbing factory.
Do a search as this is a common question that gets asked at least once a month. That said, I have the Moon Warrior and have been very pleased with it. Come the time I need a new one, I will get the Saturn purely because it's larger.
Climbing Factory pads are absolute rubbish. I have one as a second pad and it is terrible. Felt like a soggy crisp from the day i bought it.
I bought the Metolius Stomp Pad this as my first. I have found it really good, doesnt feel to soft but not to hard. Had so much use and its a really decent size and thickness. Its also really light compared to some pads I have held. Hardly feel it on your back.
Would really recommend it. I did get it at a bargin price of £60 from go outdoors end of last year (not sure why they reduced it as brand spanking) however I would not have any quarms paying the full 100 for it.
This is also awesome http://www.bananafingers.co.uk/edelrid-mantle-pad-p-681.html Is pretty pricey but awesome. The sit start pad fits insdie :)
