third hand archery?

I just ordered my self a tree stand bow holder and a set of stabilizer straps. I have read some good stuff on Archery talk about them and the reviews on the internet seam to be all great... so how about any Pa. guys using them and what are your thoughts? I hope to have them for the late archery season... assuming i have a tag yet to fill :-)

Re: third hand archery?

I bought his package of products from him at the Eastern Outdoor show a few years back and he has some good products. His stabilizer straps are great. The Lone Wolf climber I own comes with some (their own), and they really help lock your stand in solid once set in the tree. His tree belt, with accessory hooks are also nice for hanging items in the tree and also doubles to help carry your bow in the woods in front of you (great for a climber when on your back). His website has several videos that show how to use all of his products.

Re: third hand archery?

I put the bow holder on my Summit Goliath this year. Only drawback is if you are a right handed shooter and put the holder on the outside of the left side of your Summit, the bow will not fit in the holder with the arrow quiver on the bow. I usually remove my quiver anyway, but just so you know. Otherwise it's great to have the bow right at my hands reach out in front of me without having to put hooks in a tree, especially on SGL. Holds the bow extremely well.

Wishing I was at camp!

Re: third hand archery?

Hittingguru good to know. I have a Summit Razor and was wondering if that was the case. what if it was mounted on the "Arm rest" and not on the straight bar do you think the issue would still be there?

Re: third hand archery?

Pretty sure- because the bracket is set outside the stand, the nocks line up directly with the bars. Personally, I just pull my bow up, take the quiver off and put it in my back pack, put the bow in the bracket, then I have both hands free to do all I need to get set, including knocking an arrow. I think if you go to their website, there is a video of the guy climbing with the bow facing the tree in the bracket. I'm not that skilled.

If you want my honest opinion. He stole a bunch of other companies ideas and he really doesnt make anything I would consider special.

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

Re: third hand archery?

I have the Kentucky bowhunter package and think its great. Stabilizer straps are awesome. I have the bow holder on my summit viper and climb up and down with my bow in the holder. Very good stuff.

Re: third hand archery?

I've got the KY bowhunter package as well and like it alot. Like Dave, I climb up and down with my bow in the holder as well.

Stabilizer straps are nice as well, but Ive never used my viper without them, so dont know what its like with out them. I do feel safe with them tying the top and bottom together.

Great guy to talk to. I started out talking to him about his stuff, then got off on safety harnesses and he had alot of good insight to the different types of harnesses (i.e. rock climbing belts, tree stand belts, etc.)

Re: third hand archery?

Bought the stabilizer straps this year and I really
like them. My Summit Viper SD is rock solid when I
tighten them down. They make a world of difference.
