So between reading a few posts and playing with the WE Stepps it occurred to me that everyone is trying to get them level. I was reading an old post about one fellow who set up the first step to his weak shooting side first. (Said he was a big guy) Correct me if I am wrong. The stepps for the platform do not need to be set exactly level. As you move around the tree your tether gets shorter and you actually move upwards. Now I now that the diameter of the tree and your tether length all come into play. But as you loose tether length you are actually moving upward just a little bit.
