We specialize in an innovative hollow-back hold pouring process that minimizes material use and significantly reduces shipping costs. The integrity of our plastic is the key to maintaining hold strength and durability—that’s why when you turn over a Proxy hold, you’ll see a much more consistent pour than you could receive with the industry standard.

Our holds are defined by several unique characteristics, including a homogeneous pour, consistent wall and edge thickness, centered holes, smooth interior surfaces, straight structural webbing, consistent color, sanded flats, symmetric negative spaces, and constant surface offsets.

Our material is not only 10% stronger than our competitors’, but it can also withstand stresses up to 300% of the working-load standards in route-setting. We’ve gone to great lengths to dial in our plastic composition over the past 2 years, and we’re confident that when put up against any other plastic, we will meet or exceed its strength properties.

We invested in a state-of-the-art injection system to ensure the consistency, repeatability, and toughness of our product.
