I've been on the hunt for one of these guys for a while. The Boulder office for beastmaker is unresponsive and I've hit a dead end in my search. Am I missing something? Id like to buy domestically to avoid the shipping costs.

Have occasionally seen them on Amazon.

Shipping is 10 gbp from U.K.

I wanted to buy a Beastmaker a while ago and hit the same roadblock; US carriers seem perpetually out of stock and unresponsive, and shipping from the UK was expensive. I ended up getting a Tension Climbing Whetstone board, a wooden split hangboard made in the US. Shipping and service was pretty good for a small handmade outfit, and I've been happy with the board. The smaller two holds on the board are very difficult for me (V4/5 level on a good day), so I feel like I'll have plenty of room to grow on it. It's another option to consider.

Tony I did the same, I also ordered two .75" flat holds from them. I find size more useful for adding weight because I can only get one pad on. The 1" edge has a big radius so it's almost like 1 pad, but I get skin contact past the dip joint in an open hang. That extra bit of contact means I can cheat adding more weight and end up with a funky callus.
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
