After watching this post for a couple of weeks, I thought I was the only person to notice this. That thing looks HUGE on the guys back.John Henry said:The stand is bulky, comes all the way down to the back of your knees when on your back...more than twice the size of an API Bowhunter when on the back.
That stand will never make it, but that's just my two cents.
I agree with everything you said, but this.John Henry said:...
The straps to connect the top to bottom are ok.....mine just has a rope which does the job fine. But why strap the top to the bottom under tension. Why not just strap the top to the tree? When the top tilts up, it will fall down. I am sure many of you have noticed this. Straping the top to the tree prevents this.
I didn't think of it that way.John Henry said:Sokourner,
I am not so sure we have differant opinions, just differant solutions.
We both agree that a climbing chair will slide if tilted up.
I like the Bowhunter seat being strapped to the tree. Just seems to make more sense than strapping to the bottom and pulling it down.
Thanks for the reply. The one thing I do like about the lone wolf is the ability to sit while climbing. It has a bar that folds out of the way. I was hoping someone did something like that to their API stand.John Henry said:No, I've never tried to sit and climb.
I actually have the handles of the bowhunter in my armpits when I climb, find it easiest for me that way. Plus gives me the longest "stroke" thereby requiring less effort and making less noise while climbing.
