Right out of the box you can immediately tell that it is a well built, sturdy stand. The craftsmanship is top notch. The stand is light weight and easy to carry. As far as being on a tree with it, I felt comfortable as the seat is padded well and I felt safe. The climbing sticks are light weight and really seat well. Plus it’s made in the USA!! I highly recommend this stand to anyone!!
A little heavy is all not bad
Helo Hunt Ready System
For some reason years ago I decided getting up a tree wasn’t hard enough and tried all the stupid borderline bdsm ways of getting to hunting height that you see on YouTube. All that lead to was exhausted, frustrating hunts. I got used to some ways more than others. Seeing all my friends use Novix products got me to buy the Helo Hunt Ready package. First time out I was up the tree and sat down before I realized I’d set sticks and hung a stand. The little details make this small stand very comfortable, even at my size. Don’t make it harder than it needs to be. Pull the trigger. You won’t regret it.
I ordered this stand system on a Sunday, it arrived the following Wednesday. The stand and sticks are rock solid. However, the plastic 'stick holders' arrived damaged but still usable. I reached out to Novix and had a response less than 24 hours later. They offered to send me replacements immediately, but I declined their offer. I couldn't be happier with this stand, or the service provided by Novix. I will be recommending them to everyone I know who is in the market for a stand.
