did the D'Acquisto boy's buy lone wolf? the D'Acquisto boy did own x.o.p tee stand
Wow, great looking set-up there! Having spent a lot of time the last 2 seasons hunting public land with either my climber or my M-100 and sticks I can certainly appreciate the design and weight. That said I feel like the price point is nuts, I'm not saying it's not worth it as I'm sure they spent a lot of time on r&d, field testing, etc. and the end product appears to be of very high quality with great features.
Utimately for less than $800 here in VA I can add 5,000-8000 acres of private land to hunt by joining another hunt club or hell I could just buy 200 lbs of ground beef or 400 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast and golf more
I started hunting more public land to cut hunting costs, as a father of 4 and more of a part time hunter these days I just can't justify the expense on something like this but certainly wouldn't begrudge those who can/do. All I can hope for is somebody selling one cheap after a season or 2
it’s too bad that quality gear can’t be made at a lower price point... my washer and dryer have more technology in them and are half the price
wow on the price, the stand looks awesome thou
American made at least
They're also mass produced overseas whereas these stands are very low run pieces produced with the highest quality materials in the USA.
But yes, we all wish high-quality products cost less.
and are made by children in slave camps. So they got that going for them.
I’ve got 4 alpha 2’s in my garage. I bought them all (used) thinking I’d use them more than I do. I use one of them hard and have used at the most 2 sets in one day/trip. I may sell 2 or even 3 of them and put towards one of these setups. Quality over quantity makes sense a lot of the time.
Too bad they cant be little more honest with the weight of the stands, what's the point in listing weights without straps and seat
? There are pictures floating around of the stand being closer to 8 pounds vs the 7.5 pounds they are stating ...that’s with no straps and seat cushions.
lone wolf is a bit better
I just bought a climber that supposed be 20pounds take it out of the box and its...
If you could send with a tracking number that would be great. Thanks.

Haha stand not titans
Who prices an item solely upon the material cost? Time, labor, design time...those factors we all should just wipe off like they don't exist?
I'd never even consider these, for two reasons: cost and I don't run and gun. If I did....I'd strongly consider.
from what all Ive read, the stands come in waaay over the advertised weights, and an exorbitant price ..... I'll stick to my Alpha II and 4 LW sticks with my rope mods .... btw, where is the Beast stand that has been so highly touted by Dan Infalt ... word has it him and LWCG are in a pitch battle over patent rights ....
