    Well the D'Acquisto boys are back with some pretty innovative new gear. Gotta hand it to them. The stuff looks good.

    Looks like a solid setup but it comes at a price obviously. I’m also curious to see how that rubber coating holds up.

    I'm not an industry insider so is that what's up? He's not actually LW? He was at one point though, correct?

    Years ago Andre sold the lone Wolf company. However he retained the rights to the name lone Wolf.
    He then for a while went was the designer consulted for xop.
    He now has this Company seing that lone Wolf doesn't have much in the way of inventory left and really hasn'tMade any inroads or new products in the last half dozen years I kind of Wonder if they aren't on the way out.

    I very well can be pretty much totally off base as well and maybe lone Wolf customs has some affiliation with lone Wolf.

    I'm sure there's more to it than any of us know, but most of what trial said is correct by my understanding. He retained the rights to the Lone Wolf name and the ability to produce non-treestand products using the LW name after the sale. Things like bows, trail cameras, etc. I assume he had some sort of non-compete on designing and selling stands which is now up and he's back at it again using the same name and logo. I personally wish he would have changed the name and the logo to avoid all of the confusion this is going to cause people, but that's just me.

    It's a badass stand/sticks but it's pretty pricey.

    Would definately sell my assault for this stand but not for that price tag. However, i've been thinking about trying saddle hunting and getting this platform and pair it with those short sticks. Love how they pack right to the stand or platform. Packing in/out has been my biggest thing with previous stands.

    I was thinking the same thing. Eventually I wonder if Lone wolf will change their name and let the D'acquisto's run with the Lone wolf custom name to separate each other.

    Definitely some very innovative design but no way I'll ever lay out $800 for a stick and stand.
