I have only had about 5 hunts from this stand so far but i absolutely love this stand! There is an easy mod i did with paracord to make the seat a shelf to help pack in and out. My only critique is that the seat cushion isnt the most comfortable but i do tend to have longer hunts. That being said, I'm still giving this stand 5 stars because this thing is PERFECT! The 2 front center holes in the stand hold my bow and that makes for one less tool i have to pack in and out making me more mobile! If you're debating buying the Helo, let me just help you out....BUY IT! You wont regret it!
Thanks for a great review, Watson! We're glad to hear you love your Helo!
I bought the Helo when it first came out. After a while I tried another tree stand but then ultimately came back to the Helo. While it is not the lightest stand in its class on the market currently, it bites the tree better than any other stand I have tried and has virtually no flex of any kind. It is the perfect size to balance portability with shootability and comfort, enough for all day sits if needed. It has all the time-tested features needed to attach to a tree in any situation or configuration (assuming it is safe to hang a tree stand to begin with) at 1/3 the price of other similar stands on the market. Awesome bang for the buck. Highly recommend this stand!
Thanks, Chris! Hope you've had some success this year!
This stand is amazing, first impression, WOW, for as small as it is very comfortable, platform just big enough to stand and move around. Highly recommended
Thanks for your review, Peter!
Love everything about the stand, best available for the money.... But... The frost coating on the level adjustment slots was so thick that it bound up the adjustment **** and bolt. I had to use a Dremel to clean it up. Once I did it was perfect. It was worth it for me to do that but it may not be for everyone. That is my only gripe about the stand. Other than that it's awesome.
Thanks for leaving a review, Joseph, and sorry to hear you had trouble getting your platform leveling knob loose. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to reach out. We'll make sure you're taken care of!
I've tried a few mobile stands and at this price point the Helo can't be beat. Anything comparable is gonna cost nearly double, or if it is in this price range it'll lack features the Helo has. The quality and construction is excellent and it appears to be backed by excellent customer service. Ordered my stand on Sunday, and Monday morning received a call from Novix thanking me for my order! Stand's a keeper!
Thanks so much, Steve! Let us know when you have a big one down!
