I recently purchased my first tree saddle, an H2. :) So, I got out my Lone Wolf Alpha and the Muddy Pro climbing sticks, to see what I could do/adapt for tree saddle usage. Having not used this system in a couple of years, instead I've used my Summit Viper climbing stand. After making a trip into the woods behind my house to "test drive" everything, I quickly discovered the noise and weight differences of using a tree saddle.

The Muddy Pro sticks are the originals, which are 32" long with 3 fixed steps. The buckle straps are too short for larger trees, the buckles are more noisy than I remembered and not as easy to cinch down as a rope. This motivated me to purchase some climbing rated 8mm rope, cut some longer sections and modify them from the buckle straps. :cool:

Paint your sticks and they'll be even cooler...
I'd rather use a cloth camo tape vs. paint. The cloth tape will deaden other metal contact sounds and will be warmer to the touch.
Paint will, in time, scratch/peel off. Not to mention the smell that will take weeks to dissipate.
