/ Anyone made their own holds?
Plenty of info on the web on this. More hassle than it's worth IMHO.
Thought about it, but ended up making a batch of wooden ones; therapeutic and more finger-friendly. I've used some home-made ones elsewhere, and they weren't that great. I suspect it would involve a fair bit of trial & error to get the mixture spot on.
Only with a chisel
I've made some wooden ones as well and they seem to be alright.
Another question: would it be more cost-effective to buy holds or to make them?
