    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.

    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.

    Love the versatility of climbing sticks :tu:

    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.

    I wrapped them in Mossy Oak Gorilla tape :tu:

    Fitz,
    I am still trying to figure out my climbing style using this method right now. So far so good.

    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 :tu:
