Lone Wolf stepping up their game in 2019
I guess they have been watching and listening to all the guys trimming weight from their hang and hunt set ups. 7.5 lbs for the new assault?? That's pretty badass. Those sticks are sweet too. I saw in the comments stand and stick are gonna be nearly a grand.

I tried their climber to save weight for my long walks. I sold it after two sits. I did not like the way it climbed, and I was scared the entire time I was in the tree. I know many like those, but it's just not for me.

Do you wear a harness? Their climbers are certainly a lot smaller and less of a chair lounger than some of the more popular southern climbers, but for your average 3-4 hour sit I love them for ease of use, lack of noise, and speed.

My API is/was superior in all of these aspects.

Man it's amazing two fellers can use the same equipment and come to such different conclusions. I had an API Bowhunter i used for at least 10 years and i loved it. Finally bought a lone wolf hand climber and haven't touched the API since. I couldn't believe i lugged that heavy cumbersome loud POS around for so many years.

Mine is the original. It's very light. It nests perfectly and make zero noise. It's also not the bowhunter. I'll never understand wanting an open front. All I do is bow hunt, and I have to have that bar in front of me.

My brother bought the lone wolf and returned it. Said it was way too sketchy for him.

I just got the m7 microlight in yesterday. It is advertised to weigh 8.5 but mine was right at 9 lbs when I weighed it. Seems like it will be pretty quiet. My muddy pro sticks attach easily. I'm adding some versa buttons and ordered lone wolf straps. I was pissed I'd ordered it when I saw lw was coming out with a lighter one but after seeing the price I'm ok with the extra 1.5 lbs.

I have no intention of hijacking your thread but if you use a climber, the Treewalker is the best out there. Just sayin.

I watched a couple videos on these stands and while i like a lot about them, they sure seem noisy. Especially taking the top and bottom apart. Can you do that so it doesn't make noise, because the guys in the videos i watched sure couldn't....


I posted this last month in that best climber thread. Hijack away, i don't care. it's just a good conversation.

re: Lone Wolf stepping up their game in 2019
If you have a bar up front your stand is not faster than a Lw handclimber. I’ll race you anyday and twice on Sunday and beat you easily. It really doesn’t matter if it takes you extra time usually but I’m just saying. I can cover 2-3 times the distance especially coming down than someone in a sit and climb.

There’s also no way aluminum tube is quieter unless you filled the tubes. If so, there’s plenty of mods to a Lw to make it quieter also.

Given that, I wouldn’t pay $1,000 that’s absurd.

But most guys that grew up with sit n climbs as their first stands have this complaint about Lw. I get it. I grew up using my LW hand climber and loc ons while using a harness, so the freedom of movement is huge and lack of safety bars has never been an issue for me.

You'll lose. You know you do not have to sit and climb with those, right?

You can't get quieter than no sound. How are people making noise with an API?

Where did you see that? I must have missed that in the video. I stopped watching when the two dudes started talking at the end.

$1k looks accurate

$1k for that is laughable.

I really hope that wasn’t your response to the question about wearing a harness.

I have never worn one. I will most likely never wear one.

My cousin is the same way. We’ve had this conversation. He’s a heavy baw, and likes to make the point that if he loses his balance, tips over, and pours himself out of the climber/stand, he’s gonna be hanging there 20-30ft in the air.......and then what?

I asked him if he’d rather be on the ground with broken bones, maybe a snapped neck, or hanging from the tree, or stand, with a chance to recover.


I don’t know. Something to think about, I guess. Might be better to just think about not falling out of the stand.
