Anyone see this new stand and sticks combo? Not available yet and priced way way out of my league ($349 for 4 sticks and $499 for the stand) but man is it slick!!!

Yeah that is sweet. I started using a Lone Wolf system last year for "hang and hunt" situations.I applied adhesive micro fiber to the stand and sticks for works EXCELLENT, but this new system looks a lot nicer.

There seems to be a patent infringement issue, wonder if they will ever come to market?

Wow. I believe my first and last tree stand, a TSS model, cost just over a hundred bucks. $848.00 for a stand and sticks? Great googly-moogly.

You may want to look at XOP. The original owner of lone wolf has a new gig after a little time out.

I buy $79 ladder stands

From: ground hunter

Dan XOP is owned by his son Cody..... Andre has bought in back to lone wolf, but this is under lone wolf custom,,,,,,, he also designs for xop....

expensive yes, but will it sell, you bet,,,,, look at what guys and gals spend on clothing, trucks, custom bow etc,,,,,

for the younger more mobile hunter, this looks like a game changer......

as for silence on your stands etc, I highly recommend stealth strips,,, they have their own web site out of MI

It's a very slick setup, but I'm not spending that kind of money on it.

From: Iwander

I think it's going to sell like hotcakes. I guess we can look forward to something coming out made out of carbon before too long.

From: DarrinG

I like the way the seat flips and locks backward to hang your backpack to sit on so it don't sag. That is a neat feature. But $800+ ? No way, not me. I'll stick with my 15 lb Summit Open Shot SD.

"I guess we can look forward to something coming out made out of carbon before too long."

Ol'Man Tree Stands already did that.

I would be leery of the platform leveling adjustment. It looks like a friction grab inside of the adjustment slot.

Out of my price range...but a well designed system especially for hang & hunt situations.

From: deerfly
Date: 12-Jan-19

My time in the woods is limited and precious. So an extra expense to make it less strenuous would be something I would take a hard look at. But if $850 is the number that's a chunk of change for sure. Still, my guess is he won't be able to keep up with the initial demand for the first few runs.

From: Arrowflinger

Sure it will sale, There are some Broadheads that cost over a hundred dollars for 3. So it doesn't surprise me if a treestand sales for 499.00 and 399.00 for climbing sticks. just like the expensive broadheads, some people will buy them.

I like it. Been using lone wolf and XOP for few years now. They both perform perfectly. May just bite the bullet on this one also.

If you set it up and take it down every hunt, and have a long walk in and out, it might be money well spent. But, if you leave them hang for a period of time, I see no reason to spend that kind of money. The older, less expensive sticks and stands will work just fine.

From: Lowcountry

" Great googly-moogly." is right! For that price, it should come with a money back, deer killing gaurantee!

We paid $50 for those LW climbers. I sold mine for $260.

Lone Wolf stands are great. I had a hang on and a set of sticks too. I sold all my stands and sticks.

From: Shawn

I agree if all you do is hang and hunts, it is well worth it. Again if I was hunting strictly on public out of state, I may buy a set up. My Chippewa stands and LW sticks work very well but in some instances this may be better. Shawn

If I was in the next tax bracket, I'd buy 2 of these for sure. A 8lb frame pack basically. For those of us whitetail hunters that get a mile plus into the marsh or wicked topography, you can pack in, kill a deer, and back it out. Just take a few game bags and a wrap of paracord to tie the quarters/cape/skull down and you're good to go.

As of right now though I'm pretty entrenched in saddle hunting. So I'm looking for the smallest frame back with a fold out shelf that I can find. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Eberlestock packs are very narrow.

Gvdocholiday - I own exactly what you are looking for... Its called a Saddle Mule, made by Sandpiper out of Caifornia, who are the largest pack makers in the country.....

I wish I knew how to post a picture. However you can go on line and see them......

I found mine thru Cabelas on line for 80.00 and it came with the straps, but it was because they only had one in their cart. They are usually about 189.00

The frame is well made, super light, great construction, with the back shelf, which can haul about anything. lots of room to slash anything on it, super light, and compact.

It even has a inside seat, that folds out, if you want to stop and rest, and take a seat.......

We have used mine all fall, on several trips, and its great,,,, for a saddle guy, and his equip etc, and its super light you should check this out

The company makes this Saddle Mule, and it is used by LAPD and LACSO special operation units, for their needs out in the more rural areas, and its been adopted by a lot of rescue units etc

For packing out a quarter or so, its great,,,, check them out on line

Its also narrow in design, I have found no flaws with it so far
