    LWCG .5 with 3 and 4 Sticks + Aiders

    Sounds efficient. I hadn't seen those. Do you carry your saddle (to your spot) in it too? I also don't like stuff pulling on my saddle, but have MOLLE all over my packs for dump pouches, and I usually climb with my pack on. One is sling style, so it's easy to get to if I want. For my other...

    LWCG .5 with 3 and 4 Sticks + Aiders

    Thanks for sharing. I saw some reviewers were running the belt flipped on the LWCG website too. Maybe its a thing. I'll give it a try. As is, my belt is looped through the exact same spots as yours but flipped. I've got my shoulder straps one crossmember higher (which is a bit of a squeeze)...

    LWCG .5 with 3 and 4 Sticks + Aiders

    Right on. I'll have to look into that.

    LWCG .5 with 3 and 4 Sticks + Aiders

    Yeah, admirable kit overall. How do you have your waistbelt set up? I struggled with that due to the connector design. The straps don't seem placed well on the back of the belt for me to get it adjusted so that the belt transfers weight to my hips really effectively. When I do get weight...

    Tethrd ONE climbing sticks

    Great, thanks. I'm not trying to needle, I see they meet 3rd party testing (website). I didn't know if that was with and without the integrity of the chemical weld. Ernie wrote me too, which was great. Appreciate all the feedback. Very respectfully, Scott

    Tethrd ONE climbing sticks

    Great news, thanks for the reply. To be frank, I don't have a set. For myself, and maybe some others, talk of the glue failing has caused some reservations since the glue was promoted as the primary structural bonding component between the standoffs and tube. I was certainly in the check...

    Tethrd ONE climbing sticks

    @g2outdoors, @Erniepower. Hi Greg and Ernie, I'm sure you've been busy prepping for the Teach-N-Train tour (super cool you do that) and hunting thunder chickens, as well as coming off your outdoors show circuit. I realize you may not have seen this, and just wanted to pass it along. Best, Scott

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    lol. When you're old enough, it'll make more sense.

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    Mostly I agree. But... This year my dad arrowed a buck around 8:30am. He texted me, unsure of the hit. His description of what he thought happened sounded positive, but he never saw or heard the buck fall. After two hours, I carefully made my way to his stand and inspected the site of the shot...

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    Ashby digs expandables. His #4 factor is the mechanical advantage. lol. "4. Mechanical Advantage Mechanical Advantage (MA) of the broadhead ranks as number four."

    Ewo or carbon ninjas?

    Ninja's have composite steps that flex. You don't want to run aiders on the steps. I'd even ask TN about Versa Aiders, to be on the safe side. EWO, you can run about any style of aider.

    The Diamondback saddle

    Looks awesome, but not for me. I've got a case of treestand ophidiophobia ever since a snake fell on me while hunting out of state with my brother. He told me all 3 poisonous snake species in the state are found in that hunting area. I don't know if a bird dropped it or what, but it scared the...

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    This involves numerous assumptions, imo. Could all be true, but: I posted this link earlier to a cutting ability study. Here is that link: https://knifesteelnerds.com/2018/08/06/sharpness-vs-cutting-ability/ It demonstrated that a shallower bevel angle offers more cutting ability against some...

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    Ashby's 12 points are "arrow penetration factors." Of course penetration relates to lethality in many cases, but even Ashby would concede other factors come into play. As for the rest, to me you're getting into a broadhead vs broadhead thing. For example: Some of the Mechanicals fair pretty...

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    When the boat is sinking, when the dam is failing, you plug the hole. This goes into the category of bad comparisons, but it demonstrates an essential aspect of fluid dynamics. So, 2 unimpeded 1" holes with a connected interior channel (pass through), or a mostly blocked 2" "hole"?

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    I have commented on some of the lost deer by THP, and that is a different topic. However, Jake only recovered the front portion of his arrow which broke, right? My impression was that he thought that portion passed through (with the rest presumed inside the deer). Or did he later find the...

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    If you are interested in sharpness, I found this study worth the read: https://knifesteelnerds.com/2018/08/06/sharpness-vs-cutting-ability/ A few things to keep in mind here... 1. Realize there are so many factors effecting edge integrity, sharpness, and cutting ability that it would need a...

    Pleated saddles

    Sounds about right. ------- I only see this as an issue if you wear your saddle while walking to location. I find the pleat stays how you want it when you weight the saddle on stand. You could always sew a retaining device to keep the pleat closed, maybe webbing sliders like the Transformer...

    Is Ashby's #1 goal flawed?

    Far from an anatomical study, but if you shoot through a gallon of milk with a 1" broadhead and pierce a gallon with a 2" broadhead (leaving the arrow in the hole) in my mind it's likely the gallon that's been shot through drains faster. IDK, maybe that's not helpful at all.
