Review by Troy on Dec. 07, 2007
I've had these guys for about 8 years now (it really doesn't seem that long), I'm still using them everyday. They force you to stabilize your movements which is much harder (kind of like doing presses on a machine, verses free weights). I hang mine on a daisy chain, so I can get multiple positions. These are the only training tools that you can lower and work on top of them (for dips, or core workouts). I'f you're crazy hard core, you can try doing Iron Crosses etc (that'll give you a new found respect for gymnasts real quick btw.). Huge amount of variety possible, cheaper then any other hangboard, the ability to workout the most muscle groups... earns them a rare 5 stars.
Make sure they are tied so that they hang level, often they come from the factory tied at slightly different lengths (its an easy but slightly annoying fix). If you do too many dips on these guys expect rope burns... but thats due to the nature of doing dips on hanging ring.
Theres really not anything similar.

Review by thebadge on Apr. 23, 2011
I've had these for about 3 months and I love'em! They allow for full rotation throughout the shoulder girdle and SITS muscles unlike plain pull-ups which only work in a linear plane. You can train for crimps, single finger, slopers, and many other types of holds that are near impossible on a pull-up bar. I would recommend these to anyone that just wants to work the guns too. I read a review on here that mentioned that they sometimes come from the manufacturer tied a little wonkily. That's accurate, had to take mine apart and retie them. No biggie. I have each one double ankered on swivels that I got at the Home Depot, cost me about $9 for all the parts. Super important to anchor well though. Pretty much just love these.
Can't think of anything wrong with these. I might ask metolius to put out a pair of woody's like their wood training board or wood holds. I would buy those in a second.
Naaaaw, these rock.

they are better than a reg pull up bar since you can rotate your shoulders and alternate holds/offset pullups
they could have more features on the back, it's just flat

Portable, can be used almost anywhere. I personally use mine at the gym or in my home by hanging them off a pull up bar. They are great for increasing contact strength and pulling strength, I could actually see the improvement over days and weeks, and thanks to the training I got on these I was able to pull another few grades harder.
Out of the store they might need a little adjusting to get the heights even.
