Boom she is ready
Looks good. What do you figure that setup weighs in at?
Back pack an all prolly 25 lbs, but it's more slender and allows me to pick triple the trees. Not sure what the summit weighs but it's right around that fully loaded. I haven't even hunted with it yet and I already feel like I have an advantage.
How do you like the quick straps?
Dude the kwik straps are sick. You can get them super tight.
I wish I would have bought the Ez hang, but ill deal with it for now. I need to get my packing routine down and start climbing some trees I got 32 days to get used to this thing.
Get a linesmans belt if you don't have one. Makes setting up a hang on about 100 tines easier.
I would grind off the v bracket on the seat and install the off set bracket.
I use mine offset far more often and centered.
Just got done hanging a stand u wanna sling a couple arrrows
These sticks are sweet have not used them with the alpha yet, but I used them to hang a stand Saturday.
Love the versatility of climbing sticks
I sometimes just taken them into public land just to test out trees and see if a certain spot will work.
I got a few picked out already have not got to test them yet, but I confident. Aside from it requiring me to have to climb upside down I think I can do it.
Got the alpha and sticks out for the first time it took me a little longer than I expected, but I am still getting used to it!
You'll get quicker and it'll become second nature
Did you wrap the sticks in digital camo??
I wrapped them in Mossy Oak Gorilla tape
I am still trying to figure out my climbing style using this method right now. So far so good.
I also need find a way to attach a backpack I think I am just going to bungy it on there.
How big of a pack?
Just your standard size backpack...I guess medium sized. $10 cheapos at wally world.
I stack the sticks on the back, then turn one of the top sticks vertical and hang the pack off its top handle. Then I wrap the shoulder straps up on over each corresponding side of the platforms V at the base.
Let me know if this makes sense, otherwise I'll dig her out and snap a pic
Good idea, I may have to give that a try ! Thanks
