    Huge sale on treestands + double buyers club discounts through Sept 1.

    Some great deals on ladder stands and other stuff.

    Sidenote: Why such a big difference in price? I understand the LW stick is lighter, better straps, and obviously a higher quality stick. That I'll concede but having used both (and the 20' version of the cheaper stick) there is no way the LW stick is worth 7x the other. That's just plain ridiculous, I have had some of these cheap sticks in the woods for 5+ years only replacing straps and they are very durable. That said I have had to replace sections after the same length of time and have found that they do require maintenance as far as new nuts/bults & occasional light sanding/painting. Even considering that 7x more expensive is highway robbery for essentially 10 less pounds and a LW sticker.

    I am a SG club member. I purchased 3 treestands this spring when they had free shipping and were on sale. Great place to find good deals on stands.

    I used to be, but let my membership expire. As for the Lone Wolf comparison, I would tend to agree with you on the ladder sticks, but not on the climbing sticks, they are worth the money in their portability and ease of use. A semi-permanent ladder stick doesn't need to be light or portable so you can get away with the cheap stuff.
