I think it’s a well build stand but I am giving 4 stars because I think the top teeth need to be more aggressive and more of a narrow shaped v vs a wide shaped v, I noticed when hanging it on the tree the bottom dug in we’ll but the top did not.
Very good service
If you’re reading this you’re obviously like me and want to know what others think before you pull the trigger. I’m not a die hard mobile hunter but I think it’s nice incase you need to get closer to the bedroom. Not the lightest but for each pound you take off the stand you’re paying for it. The stick’s literally stick to the tree, the stand is a little tough to get into the tree I recommend the EZ strap for less stressful set up. Quiet setup as well since while I was setting up a doe walked by at 16 yards. And 5 more followed that same trail. Single steps was where I was worried but i found no issues after climbing up and down. Stand is made for a medium/small size tree don’t expect to climb the giant oaks or pines. I could see getting 20-24 feet up in a tree with all stick used no aiders. I walked a mile in the woods and a mile out I noticed the weight toward the end near my truck but that was after an all day sit. A little cumbersome walking through the thick stuff and definitely going to add some stealth stripes to the edges and sticks. (This is all with it strapped to my backpack) as someone who has about 5 days of mobile experience and the hawk mobile set up left a bad taste in my mouth due to safety concerns I would say for the ease of setup for a new comer and the safety as well as the comfort I would recommend this stand 10/10 times. The my final note the stand came within 4 days from ordering.
Buddy bought your hunt ready kit last year and I thought i would get the same thing but I did not receive padded shoulder straps, seems like prices went up and you give less. I bought the echo and it is actually bigger than anticipated
Probably would go with the smaller one if done again. Things that would make the stand better would be an accessory pouch underneath the seat, backpack mounting system (buckles at the 12,3,9 with straps you attach to your pack) overall nice just not $589.99 nice.
For a longbow hunter, this system works the best for me.
