    Thanks for the link DB. I've not seen these before - I like the dual steps (just makes it easier in the dark). The closest thing I've got to them are my LW climbing sticks which I like. Of course, like anything - one needs to practice a bit with anything they choose to use.

    Can you slip that rope through with one hand. I feel if it takes two hands then the sticks may not be the safest? I use sticks that are aonnected all the way up now and I can make the ties with one hand while holding on with the other.

    The rope cam system is a nice touch and the dual steps is a good idea. They seem a little short for the asking price. If the idea is to draw hunters away from LW to try theirs, pricing them better would help.
    Be good or be good at it.

    The set up (cam) looks like what's on my brother's sailboat - all he has to do it pull the rope down across the cam, it slips in due to the pressure on it. To remove, pull up on the rope and it comes out.
    I just realized the vedio pretty much shows what I just said. Should of watched it instead of going to the site and checking out what all they offered.

    At those lengths one would need several. Weight limit is 300lbs so that leaves me out for now.

    DB, I've got a 3 pk. of the LW (3 step version). Generally I tend to use a tree that has a few limbs that I can use along with the sticks. I try to set my stand around 16' (to the platform). I've got my pull up rope set up for this height, when it gets taunt - it's time to set the stand. I try to step down on to the stand - this gives me 2 steps above the stand platform. I've thought about purchasing an extra stick (even the mini one) just to give me a bit more heighth. If they weren't so darn expensive I would most likely have one
    I'm a shorty, only 5'5" - for that height, being able to get a stand at 16' isn't bad. They also have a 300# weight limit. If you check most climbing sticks (that go together as one piece) - there aren't many that are rated for more than 300#. For that matter, most safety harness's are rated about the same.

    LOne Wolf brand. Saw a guy at AT sales a slip rope for them that makes a faster attachement. I just dont like the way they have straps that you have to feed thru and pulll. I use sets that are four pieces and all attach together now that get me 20'. Just looking for something more mobile for the one day hunts.
