Mobile hunters, especially saddle hunters seem to like the Hawk Helium climbing stick. This is also a very versatile piece and can easily be used to silence treestands as well. This width replaces the 3” width, which we felt wasted too much material in the channel. This size still has a little extra material that will wrap into the channel and make a great termination point. Also at each step, we recommend taking a sharp razor knife and trim off that small area at the edge of the stick, so it does not go into the channel where each step is. Then save that small piece and place it where the steps contact the inside of the channel when fully opened and closed. You will hear a clank when aggressively opening and closing the step. Locate the contact point and place that tiny piece of material to address the metal to metal sound.
These sticks can be easily wrapped with little to no disassembly.
