UKC Gear Review Part II

My next gear review for UKC was about the DMM Highball and Bit bouldering mats.

I never knew that I could write over 2,800 words on a bouldering mat! I was quite sceptical going into the process as I was a huge fan of the Franklin Dropzone (RIP), but my tried and tested friend has seen the last of its useful days and a replacement was in order.

I felt that the Highball was a good alternative and even absorbed more shock than the Dropzone. I’m still a bit concerned about the hinge area after using tacos for nearly all of my bouldering life, but I have yet to have any problems with it.
