Just got the call back from lwcg. I asked them about the edges and they say they will all be deburred before leaving the warehouse. Hope this is true ! She also said they don't recommend using amsteel daisy chains. Any thoughts on this ? Like I said my buddy made me some ultimate attachment straps like the ones from doublesteps.
What did they say about the lead time?

They said they are supposed to get sticks in either this week and if not next week then will ship out. So fingers crossed I get them before next week.

if you use daisy chains you will have to use them as a truckers hitch. Using them like a daisy they won’t get the stick tight enough and they will likely kickout. That’s those sticks Achilles heel of sorts.

The videos posted running rope mods/daisys, etc ropeless works great.

My new 1.0 should be here today-will update on edges when received

I needed to follow up on this thread, as I inquired about the stability of the 20" sticks based on my experience with the 17" double-steps being downright awful.

I didn't want to start a back and forth because I had no experience with the 20" sticks and I have no real skin in the game. Just knowing one way or the other is good enough for me.

Anyways, I picked up a set of 20" doubles here off of this forum and they arrived yesterday. I didn't play with them too much as I ran short on daylight, but WOW. I'm pleasantly surprised and how much more solid the 20" double steps are compared to the 17". With the 17's, it seemed no matter how I secured them to the tree, whenever I put pressure on one side of the top step(as in not standing with both feet on it, the torque always brought one of the bottom standoff bolts off the tree. I didn't like that...very sketchy.

Now these 20" sticks, I don't know if the extra length down low below the mounting point distributes that torque better because of the increased leverage, and all standoff points continue to make contact throughout the climbing cycle, or what ever it is...but over all if felt like there was less twist/flex and the stick just felt overall way more stable compared to the 17". Not in the same realm as my beast sticks...but definitely stable enough to were I will be giving these a season run for 2022.

I did the same and bought a set of 20’s. I haven’t had the issue of lockout yet.

I haven’t owned or used any of the sticks, but I am curious as the how the new shortest ones will hold on the tree.
