    Wild Edge

    I used them last season and bent several badly. On looser bark trees they were terrible but on the right tree they were great. I went back to Muddy's but may give them another go. When they worked they were my favorite. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Recon sizing

    Small. I'm same waist. 6ft 200lbs. I'm in Texas so not much layering needed but I have plenty of room for adjustment. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Leg straps on method

    Recon user here. I don't use them. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Recon sizing

    I'm 6' 195lbs 33" waist and got a small. I couldn't imagine using anything larger. I went with Marc's suggestion when ordering. I was apprehensive as I'm not a small in anything but he was right. I'd see if he'll swap it out. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    What will you change/improve for next year?

    I'm looking to start one sticking and rappelling down. Currently have Muddy pros but will likely pick up a Shikar or something similar in weight as well as rappelling gear. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    What boots for saddle platforms?

    I've woren rubber boots on my platform before. I generally don't like them for lots of walking but for just standing there, I didn't notice a difference. Just my experience. Good luck! Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    H2 to Recon

    Not form H2 but moved from a Mantis and don't regret it. The Recon is extremely comfortable for me. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Nutterbuster's Treehopper Recon Sling Video

    Same here. I love my recon and consider it worth the wait but there were several missteps along the way that were frustrating. I bet he's just overwhelmed. I think if people go into this with realistic expectations, even if he sets unrealistic ones, they will be happy with the quality of gear...

    Leg straps

    I used to on my mantis as I didn't want to cut them off and regret it. Got a recon recently which has removable leg straps. Removed them and haven't looked back since. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Nutterbuster's Treehopper Recon Sling Video

    Mark mentioned he was receiving this feedback when I ordered. He recommended the small for me even though I'm a 33 inch waist. Glad he did, it fits perfect. At 195lbs I never thought I'd be a small in anything but it works. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Recon and ESS 2 panel saddle

    The Recon has a rubberized coating making them quieter then the ESS if they hit each other, carabiner, ropeman, etc. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Switching positions

    More than I'd like to. I can't seem to get super comfortable for long periods of time. I stick with the saddle for weight savings though. Not certain if I'd say it's way more comfortable than a treestand for me at least. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Nutterbuster's Treehopper Recon Sling Video

    Gonna have my first hunt in mine tonight. I removed leg loops as well but like how you've used them and may try that. Good luck! Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Treehopper Recon Sling/Saddle

    I think I'm going to give this a try. How many are you using and how high are you getting? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Treehopper Recon Sling/Saddle

    Just got my saddle yesterday. Are you using as a ROS? Do you think you could use as a climbing method? I'm considering them. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
