Wish the plastic quiver secured to the seat rail better but everything else is perfect
This setup is pretty slick. Easy to pack around and set up. Just wish I would’ve known I would need a harness with a lineman’s belt to get it up the tree safely and quickly. But after getting one and setting it up, this stand/stick combo is great. When I was told these stand grip into the tree, they absolutely do (see pics after rope mods are removed)
I'll admit I was a bit skeptical as my go to "run and gun" stand has always been my light weight climber. While only a few lbs heavier than the Helo system, the climber is more bulky and a real pain to pack in where I typically hunt so it basically gets locked to the base of a tree for the season. The Helo is a dream to pack in....nice, flat and compact. Today was the first opportunity to use it. Aside from the extra time needed to undo the attachment straps, I don't believe it took me any longer to get in the tree than it would with a climber. I'm pleasantly surprised with all the features! And to top it off, Novix reached out to me with a live person phone call to thank me for my purchase and to wish me to have a nice day.....who does that? Novix does 😉 My hats off to Novix for great products and great customer service!
Great quality stand love everything about after a few upgrades. A little more padding on seat. And the plastic pieces that hold sticks together.
