Comments about River's Edge 20' Rapid Stick Climbing Stick:
These climbing sticks are the easiest to set up, and BY FAR the safest climbing aid on the market. Having level bars to put BOTH feet and BOTH hands on at the same time is the key. With a safety belt or harness, this allows you to have two hands free while standing COMFORTABLY as long as necessary to raise and attach your fixed-position stand. I use these on ALL my tree stands, and will never use another product - they just don't get any better. BTW, quick clips are available at a nominal fee to attach the sections together if you wish. This is not necessary, but provides the ULTIMATE in safety.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
