REVOLUTION GRILL ($69)

Revolutionclimbing.com

This unusual board garnered the strongest reactions from our testers: They either loved or loathed it. The Grill is a high-relief curved board with a full-hand “baby’s-head” slope, a series of horizontal finger rails down the center, jugs on the outside, and pockets on the bottom. Testers who dug the board raved about the powerful sloper. “I’d get it just for that,” said one jarhead. Those who didn’t groove on it whined that the texture was too abrasive, the pockets too thin: “Bevel them,” said one finger-sore crybaby. On the plus side, the long finger rails let you vary your hand width, and the curve of the board engages the lats when you spread your hands to shoulder width.

BEEFS Painful pockets and jugs.

BEST FOR Sloper training.

IF ONLY IT HAD A series of more varied slopers.
