Every company who manufactures climbing grips has their own special methods and materials. These materials and techniques have always been closely guarded secrets....until now. At Three Ball Climbing we've spent about 6 months documenting in detail exactly how we make our grips. It has cost tens of thousands of dollars to develop our process and find the proper materials and tools to make climbing grips of the highest quality.

    Additional Info needed?
  • We will be working on creating 'how to' vids for youtube that explain all of this, however our highest priority is processing orders for customers. We can only work on these vids if we happen to have a spare moment.

  • While this pdf does cover every detail I could think of, i'm sure there will be additional questions. Please keep in mind, I cannot in good conscience spend time answering hundreds of questions for free while customers are waiting for their orders. On the other hand I do offer consulting services for $250 an hour. Email me (Steve) for more details and to schedule an appointment.
