Metolius Simulator 3D Gear Review – One of the World’s most popular hangboards. This model combines a fantastic selection of pockets and edges with a shape that inspires good body positioning at an excellent price.
Price: £85.00 each, but available for less in the UK.
Pros: A very good number of edges, pockets, slopers, and jugs. Holds designed for good progression and ergonomic shape helps lower stress on the users body. Fits above most doorways and is super value for money.
Cons: Not the best model for super high end climbers. Not as compact as other models.

The Jurassic Verdict
The Metolius Simulator 3D is extremely popular, and for good reason. This hangboard offers a fantastic selection and above average number of excellent holds. This hangboard is not aimed at super high end climbers, but those working from 6a to 8a grades. The hangboard offers plenty for climbers to start using a hangboard and to improve their finger strength. The Metolius Simulator 3D is ergonomically very good and with its fine texture is kind to the skin. This board is small enough to fit in a lot of places while still offering a high number of edges and pockets. To be honest it’s hard to find a better board at an equal or lower price!
