NOTE: To better reflect the nature of these holds, Enix has chosen to change the name of this line from Jugs to the far more appropriate name - Sandbags.
First thing first, these holds are not the typical, sinker, OH THANK GOD! type of jug that one is used to. They do however, offer a positive profile, but lack the full finger wrap that the name jug implies. They range from SMALL to XL, and one XXL feature. The sizes SMALL- XL offer a solid pour construction and the XXL sports hollow back construction, creating an extremely light hold for its size.
These holds have a sticky texture, but not on the aggressive side. The radius of the gripping surface combined with the texture, offers comfort for long sessions. These holds will take layers of skin, not chunks. The SMALLs offer 1 – 1.5 pads of gripping surface, and this increases as you progress upwards through the hold sizes. These are workhorse holds. They shined on the 50 degree wall making for moderate to difficult climbing. On the 20 degree wall the difficulty is dialed back. Though, on steep terrain volumes could be used to mitigate the difficulty.
