Climbing sticks are devices that hunters use to climb up and down trees. They typically consist of a series of metal or plastic rods that are connected together, and they can be adjusted to fit the hunter’s height.
Climbing sticks can be very helpful for hunters who want to get a better view of their surroundings, or who need to climb up to a higher vantage point to take a shot.
The culmination of 15 years experience, research and design in remote clipping devices, Beta Evo Clip Sticks have all the functionality of the original BetaStick but are significantly enhanced with improved features, most particularly a “flicklock” type method of locking and releasing the pole sections which is much easier to use and less prone to jamming.
This version is theSuper Standard- ideal for general sport climbing duties. Capacity for lasso clipping and quickdraw removal. Integral hooking feature for rope retrieval. New pole design to prevent spinning with secure locking mechanisms and a stiffer, more durable build quality.
A dual position spring to securely retain karabiners, optimise gate opening and release smoothly. Compatible with a wide range of snap gate karabiners – both solid and wire gate. An ergonomically angled head to easily access bolt hangers in difficult clipping situations.
Clips to harness for ‘bolt-to-bolting. There are several videos on its use on the Beta Designs Website.
I own the compact and standard length beta sticks but decided to get this one as well to hang draws before doing some climbs with difficult clipping stances. The compact and standard are both fantastic and I highly recommend them.
This ultra long version I used once-one time just hanging a draw not even with a rope attached and it broke. It is too flimsy and long and when fully extended it falls over about half of it’s length and bends the poles and once that happens you can no longer extend or contract the clip.
Again, one single use and this thing broke, worst design ever. Once the pole falls over this clip is no longer than the standard version the extra length is absolutely worthless. Avoid this product unless they somehow make it stronger.
I got the shortest version which I regret because it is just barely too short at my favorite crags. If I got a longer version, this would still be a 4/5. To best use this device, you really need 2 hands on it fully loaded and at full extension.
The shortest version of this stick clip requires me to, more often than not, use only one hand to reach and stabilize the end because it is not long enough on its own to reach. This kinda sucks as it sometimes means I have partially climbed the bottom fo the route just to reach some of the higher bolted first bolts.
I will probably get the longer version eventually, once I get sick of this game. The actual head *mostly* works. On some quickdraws, the gate retention spring struggles to grip and the gate flutters closed very easily.
Weirdly, it seems to work better on wire gates for me. Also, I wish there were a way to stow the gate retention spring without wearing it out. You can kind of fold it up, but it weakens the spring, exacerbating the above issue.
Ive either poked myself or someone else with the pointy wire bits once or twice and that was not super pleasant. Overall, It works well enough that I have trouble recommending something else. These are just minor issues, one of which is not entirely the fault of the product.
Finally bought a stick clip. (Used to just make do with a real stick and the bunny ears. ) The actual stick part of this is great. Very rigid even at full extension. I was a little upset that I couldn’t get the 12′ version, but now I’m happy that I have one that will actually fit inside my climbing pack.
I’m less jazzed about the carabiner attachment. Even with the ability to adjust the gate holder this doesn’t hold the biner very tightly and it can it knocked out way too easily. And I have yet to successfully use this to just clip a rope into an already-hung quickdraw (using the method described in most videos of trying to pin the rope under held carabiner).
Most sets of climbing sticks go to 20′. Our Guide Gear 25′ Climbing Sticks give you an extra 5′ of height, putting you an extra 5′ above the keen noses of wary game animals. Separates into 5′ sections for easy carry through the woods, and simple to assemble once you get there.

weight capacity Set weighs 27. 5 lbs. Order today!.
I always buy 25′ sticks. These are the best price I have found. The straps are good quality and thick. S hooks are heavy. They seem to last. I have sets that are over ten years old and still going strong.
Don’ t let nature decide where you hunt there’ s nothing stopping you with Muddy Pro Climbing Sticks. Straight crooked or somewhere in between the Pro Sticks are designed with four sections that can adjust to the slope of any tree and attach using a rope cam attachment system.
Sturdy lightweight and packable this climbing system has it all. The Pro-X comes feature packed with orange nylon silencers an aluminum upright design with bark biters that securely attach to any tree and fold up steps that are cleated for a sturdy non-slip grip.
This stand is weighted at merely 2. 5 Lbs. per section and carries a weight rating of up to 300 Lbs. The Pro-X Climbing System packs with several of Muddy’ s fixed position stands creating the perfect partnerships for the ultimate hunting experience!.
I’ve had my sticks a couple of years and they have been great. They are solid and easy to set up quietly. They have to be the easiest sticks to use. They grab the tree good, I never had one come loose on me.
I really like the folding double steps. The one downside is they are not real light.
These are really nice climbing sticks. The only negative is theyre a little heavy. They are advertising 2. 5# , but theyre closer to 3. 5 lbs ea. Overall its a great stick thats built tough and the cams make it so easy to attach to the tree.
Quite possibly the lightest, most portable climbing sticks on the market! The Helium sticks offer aircraft-grade aluminum construction with weight-saving cutouts making each 20-inch section a scant 1.
8 pounds. Dual sided Traction-grabbing steps offer unmatched stability on both sides when ascending or descending. To create a streamlined package for transport the steps fold up and sticks nest tightly together w/ our NEW silent lock technology suction cups.
To add to stealth and ease of setup, a NEW versa button silent strap setup has been added to each stick to limit noise during set-up and TreeDigger Teeth bite into bark for added confidence when climbing.
The pros of the new version are the suction cups and the versa button attachment. I like the way they stack for transport compare to the originals. The button attachment is quiet compared to the previous version with the clips.
The cons are daisy chain straps and the material for the steps seems to be of a lesser grade. The daisy chain straps are difficult to get over the buttons, especially with gloved hands. Additionally, I can’t get the strap as tight as I could with the cam buckle straps.
This causes some instability with the stick is on the tree which leads to some “squeaking” when climbing. The steps bent some the first time I climbed with them. My older set seemed to be a bit more sturdy.
All in all, I like the sticks. They’re light and easy to hang with replacement cam buckle straps. I’ve always had good luck with Hawk products.
There are a few things that are good and bad. Good: lightweight, interlocking system for quick and easy carrying, very solid and sturdy and easy to set up and install. Bad: mine came with the webbed tether not the winch strap and that is difficult to fasten hanging on the side of a tree.
The foot pegs hurt your hands as you try to pull yourself up. The interlocking pegs can be very difficult to separate. The sticks tend to pull away from the tree at the bottom as you climb up causing lots of issues and even slippage down the tree.
4 sticks do not get you very high. You will need to add more sticks or a ladder to get higher. Overall they are a useful tool to have in your hunting kit.
The sticks themselves are great, bite the tree securely I like the step on both sides. Super lightweight and added Amsteel daisy chain for little more weight saving. The NOT so good: The material that the travel buttons are made of need a major redesign.
In the cold, they don’t want to release and all 4 of them now are broken and don’t stay together on their own anymore. I have lost all the advantages these should have givven because I now have to add more weight with bungee cords to keep them together.
A simple material change will make the is sure homerun, I hope your listening hawk! I need more and am currently looking at the XOP ultra series. Fix the issue, it is well known.
Made of lightweight aluminum, these portable step sections mount securely to trees with three silent cam buckle straps to give you a quiet and secure path up the tree. Measuring 32L each, these three sections give you 12.
These sticks weigh in at exactly 9lbs as stated on the box. With the provided ratches straps it totals 9. 58lbs. (3) sticks weighed together. – The lone wolf sticks (competitor) are $160 for (3) pieces.
Vs. These API’s for $100. – The Lone Wolf weighs in at 2. 5lbs a stick and the API at 3. 0lbs a stick. – The Lone Wolf uses a single side spaced step. VS thess API’s that have a double step! These are as lightweight as it gets for the price.
They stack for easy transport & make zero noise while traveling with them. You will be glad you got these when you’re setting up your tree stand or saddle harnesses with the double step feature. Don’t delay! These go out of stock quickly.
Well these get you into the tree. They don’t stack well and because the steps don’t fold and they’re 32 inches long it’s hard to pack in. If they’re on a bag they’re either to high or low enough to scrape your butt.
That middle step really makes them a pain to transport. But you can always find a work about. You could make them into beast sticks. Not great but after they’re on the tree I like them.
I purchased multiple sets of these, they’re quieter than my lonewolf sticks. I dont ever walk further than a half mile with them on my back so the couple extra pounds doesnt take away from their value at all for me.
3 sticks doesnt get me high enough so I always use 4 and it’s perfect, comfortable to climb. My son is 7, easy for him to climb as well.

I bought two of these stands to replace traditional hang-on stands I’ve been using for years. I’m to the age where I need more comfort, and this stand definitely fits the bill for comfort; my back and butt aren’t sore after hunting from it.
The stand was easy to put together with good instructions and went in the tree as easy as any other hang-on I own. The stand has a platform leveling system that I needed with both trees. However, the leveling system only works with trees that lean forward; it will not work with trees that lean back.
It would be nice to have a leveling system that works with both types of trees. The seat also has a leveling system that makes the seat parallel to the platform. However, this can cause issues on a tree that leans forward because then the backrest contacts the tree causing you to lean forward.
Good in theory but not in reality. The seat design is horrible for folding the seat up. The seat is hinged on the rear frame support post and the seat back frame is attached to the seat frame. So when you fold the seat up, the seat back also goes up.
On a tree that leans forward, the seat back support bar gets wedged against the tree and must be pulled away from tree before the seat will fold all the way up – two-step process. This takes too much time, is too much effort, and is too much movement.
This could cause issues on a buck trotting in looking for does. Terrible design! The seat back should be stationary. The platform also really narrows from the support cables back to the tree. I like the rear of the stand to have some width to it so I can step there first and then around the cable to the front of the platform when transitioning from climbing stick to stand.
This stand does not really allow you to do that, which caused me to rotate the stand closer to my climbing stick. I’m sure Hawk probably did this to save weight, but this most likely isn’t a stand you will be packing in for every hunt.
Lastly, I would have liked this stand to have come with a ratchet strap instead of a cam buckle. It also really needs another strap (ratchet) for the bottom of the platform to really make it solid. I will keep hunting from them for their comfort, but Hawk could easily make improvements to make this a five-start stand.
Sturdy: yes Easy to use: No. Weight: 17 lbs. not even close. I don’t know what the actual weight is, but it is at least twice the weight of my friends 20lb Summit Climber. Once you have the 3rd stick placed, the weight of the stand itself is much heavier then 17 llbs.
I’m used to carrying around 40 lbs in a pack, and this is much closer to that 40 lbs. Getting the stand in place while standing on the 3rd stick and using a lineman’s rig, is like wrestling with a 40 lb unruly child.
You almost need 2 people. If it was, in fact, 17 lbs, it would not be that difficult. Even if you exclude the climbing sticks, it STILL is not 17 lbs. But it is sturdy. Just don’t plan on back packing it into your hunting spot and still expect to back back or haul a deer out at the same time.
I recently bought this stand because I’ve been interested in the mesh comfort seat models that are gaining popularity. Opted for the Hawk brand because their products are often decent from my experience with their smaller products like their hoist rope and bow hanger, and because it was significantly cheaper than the Millenniums.
First impression was everything looked good however there were numerous scratches and scuffs in the powder coating due to poor packaging. I also noticed a couple spots where the coating had chipped down to bare metal.
I chose the box with the least amount of damage so I’d hate to see the stands that were in the beat up boxes. During assembly my opinion only got worse on this stand. I was shorted one large washer, luckily I had one in the tool chest to complete the assembly.
In the instructions, the picture on the box and website, and any YouTube video I could find on the product, there was no designation which seat bar goes where and they were not identical. I guess you have to assemble it, hang it in a tree, try it out and hope you didn’t put the smaller bar under your thighs because that could be a painful sit.
In that event, you get to take down your stand and take it back to the shop to disassemble it before putting it back together and hanging it again. In putting these seat bars on the stand, they fit so tightly that you peel the coating right off parts of the stand down to bare metal trying to wedge these seat bars in place (yes they are the same length so these issue is not caused by having a bar in the wrong place, I tried it both ways).
There also must be a few different versions of this stand because the model that I had had more assembly with screws than the instructions showed so my stand didn’t match the instructions and I just took a guess here.
Had initially thought I should’ve gone with the helium model for many reasons; just seems like a nicer stand, but I don’t see how the construction of that stand would change any from just a different metal frame used.
Plus I’d feel way worse paying $200+ for a stand with these issues I’ve experienced. I shouldn’t have had these issues for what I paid. I wouldn’t let the higher cost of the Millenniums stop me next time.

I really liked this product. It is already in the woods waiting on bow season. My only negative is that just a couple of years ago this type of product cost less. Maybe the steel and tariffs would explain the almost 20% increase.

Great climbing sticks. A snap to set-up. Provided straps pull the step sections tightly against the tree for a solid, confident feel. A really good product and a good value here on Ebay. Always remember to install a safety rope and use your safety harness while in the stand.
We have to remember that anything mechanical can break or snap and we need a layer of safety between us and the ground if that event happens.
I made this purchase to make hanging and getting into my stand easier. It is very difficult to carry and equally difficult to assemble and attach to the tree. While attempting to apply the straps, the climbing stick bent and I fell about 10 feet.
SKU 52210039 – This set includes three 30 inch climbing sticks made of aircraft aluminum. Each stick weighs just 2. 9 lbs! Folding steps and Tight-Pack bungee cords means transport and storage is a breeze.
I guess I lucked out because some of the issues other reviewers have had didn’t really happen to me. That said, I didn’t even bother with the suction cups as they seem jankie and added more weight and bulk.
The steps fold down and up just fine for me. I added an aider step with climbing rope and a little pecs plastic tubing so I can get a third step for a couple of ounces. The cinch down strap is loud and heavy so I’m considering another webbing or the versa straps, but I’ve not done that yet and may not due to laziness.
I’ve taken a few deer this year and last using these and am pleased with how well they work in the field. I’ve loved saddle hunting and these sticks have worked well.

Be mobile and be fast with this great independent climbing aid.
Used these this season for bow hunting from sept to nov. I was really impressed with them in the early season. They were sturdy and wouldn’t move too much. You would have to figure out the best way to climb them as the would pull away from the tree and make a noise.
Late season was a lot worse when the weather went below zero. Yet they stayed in place and allowed me to climb to my stand to get my biggest buck yet. For the price, you can’t go wrong. They’re about $10-20 cheaper than anything else I’ve seen.
Bought 6 sections last fall and installed them on oak and maple trees. They squeak when the weather gets cold, below 40 degrees. If you want to get into your tree squeak free don’t get these steps. I have 6-8 year old gorilla brand steps with no issues.
The Grip Stick offers security, versatility and portability with the preferred double step design. Climb confidently with two steps at every level and Tractionite permanent non-slip coating on the top of each step that won t rub off or wear out.

Dual sided steps offers confident climbing & and extra feel safe comfort.
I am really disappointed with this product. Nice for on a power pole but most trees aren’t as straight as this ladder needs. If you disconnect them to accommodate for the contour of a tree then the pieces aren’t stable or safe.
Only reason I’m not returning is that I already recycled the box.
I got the ladder that has the buttons on it like the two others I have. Thought this was an upgrade. Theses are the best sticks I have ever used but the metal buckle part of the strap hits the tree offset bracket.
Bigger and better than the original. If you liked the original Summit Viper, you’ll love the new and improved Viper Pro SD. It’s designed for both gun and bow hunting and features premium aluminum construction that makes it strong, lightweight, and ready to backpack into no-man’s-land.

I bought this climber for fall archery this year ‘22. I have never used or even tried a climber in my life, usually used stands already set up, blinds, and occasionally just hunt off the ground. I got on it for the first time yesterday after my father went over everything with me on how to set up safely, what to expect, what to look for on the tree.
He went up the tree before me on the stand and talked me through as he went up. I knew it was pretty much common sense how it worked but being as my first climber I’m not going to think of all issues I could run into and I seem to like to learn the hard way.
I got in it and started up the tree. I became addicted. I thought I would be the type to prefer to sit and bring the bottom up being a female at 5’ 1”. I preferred to use my arms to bring the bottom up because I couldn’t get my butt out far enough to sit and bring the base up with me my legs were too short.
Taking my time up the tree and making sure the teeth bit in I couldn’t believe how quickly I scaled 15ft. I got the stand secured and tried out the seat which was so comfortable I am going to have to fight falling asleep in fall.
I wasn’t thrilled with the harness that came with it, because it was a pain to untangle. I ended up buying a Muddy harness separate. Which changes no view on the stand itself. I like that it’s light weight.
The backpack straps did not look comfortable at all but surprisingly we’re not bad by any means. Overall the stand is light weight. Being a small female I was able to use it very well and am already in love with it and plan to keep playing around with it to get ready for fall archery.
I had never used a climbing stand in my life, just a ground blind and ladder stand guy. After careful consideration and research I decided to roll the dice and purchase the Mini Viper. I’m glad I did! I put it on a tree for the first time in my back yard and learned how to use it.
I guess I spent half and hour going up and down the tree multiple times just to get the “hang” of it. The stand is comfortable, light weight, and quiet just like the description said. My first sit on a hunt was 3 1/2 hours and I got so comfortable I thought about taking a nap! I am 6′ 2″ tall and weigh in at 190 lbs with warm clothes, rifle, and pack.
I had no back, leg, or hip discomfort the whole time I was in it. I am upgrading the safety harness; however, because it’s much to difficult to use compared to other options on the market. I can’t say enough great things about it! As a new-b climbing stand owner, I believe Summit Mini Viper is the way to go for compact, low weight, quiet, and comfortable climber.
I hope this review helps you all. Overall great investment for what I love to do- HUNT!.
I bought the Summit Sd weeks before opening season. The 1st day using it, the paint had already started to chip. As I begin to use the product for the next couple of days, it starts to make louad squeaking noises as you climb up, both top and bottom pieces.
Some may say the nesting for the self climb is good, but others and I go through the difficulties of putting the time to securely nest the self climb together in a fast convenient way so it doesn’t make any noise.
I personally love evening hunts and at times when I want to climb down to start packing up to go home, I do not want to take the extra time to secure the rattling and clanking noise from the product.
Although the product was not too suited for myself, I do feel that it is comfortable and safe when you are sitting and on the watch.
Summit’s new Viper Level PRO SD has elevated the treestand game once again with its revolutionary EasyLevel dials. Thanks to this innovation, you no longer have to worry about climbing down to dial in the angle of your platforms.
The first thing I did was wrap all metal contact points in nylon cord. This thing is light and quiet. I like how much smaller it is than the viper. I did not like carrying that through the woods I like to go in some pretty thick stuff.
The seat folding back is a huge plus! I like to stand a lot and this gives me so much more room to do that. I’m sure I will make a few modifications to the stand to make it better for me but it’s almost a perfect stand the way it is.
I just wish some it didn’t move production to China. Because of that I probably won’t buy another one of their stands. Made in America is important.
I’ve been hunting for years from a ladder stand or a ground blind, but in effort to become just a tad bit more mobile, I purchased the viper Sd ultra. It’s very simple to assemble and very intuitive to learn to climb on.
The hardest part was figuring out how the two pieces nest together and where to run the back pack straps for carrying the stand. I’ll probably buy a real set of back pack straps to attach to the stand, but I’m super happy with everything else about it.
I’d buy it again in a heart beat it it were stolen, and remember PRACTICE, practice practice! Happy and safe hunting!.
Our Guide Gear Quick Climbing Sticks make it easier and safer to set up your hang-on stand and climb up/down. Welded, tubular steel construction is strong and durable, yet the entire set weighs just 18 lbs.
, so these Climbing Sticks are easy to carry to your hot spot. Includes (3) 32 inch segments that combine to provide 8′ – 12′ of elevation. Strong, reliable straps secure each section to the tree securely, and anti-slip textured strips are included for the steps, so you can climb with confidence.
Stealthy compact design is tree friendly Welded tubular steel construction Anti-slip, double-step design Quick and secure strap-on tree attachment on each section 300-lb. weight capacity Includes (3) 32 inch sections (8′ total height) Each Stick weighs approx.
I loved my first set of these so much I bought a second set I don’t really need just to have them. Some climbing sticks are $45 per section. These are an awesome value at $45 per 3 and my second set was on sale at $19! KACHING! Very stable and safe feeling.
I have an extra single stick I bought for $13 because I need 4 sections to get to the height I want. I take the bottom section with me to keep people out of my stand and use it to hang my trail cameras up about 10 feet high.
Keeping the cameras higher keeps deer and camera thieves from seeing them. Don’t use the anti-slip tape that comes with them, that doesn’t stick, just get some at he hardware store and you will have a great ladder.
These tree climbers work well for the kids to get to the branches on back yard trees. They’re sturdy welded steal. The straps are decent quality. No slip textured rung strips included. It straps tight at top & welded V shaped part digs into the bark on the bottom They held in place enough for my 215lbs.
to climb. Better alternative to drilling into a live tree or strapping many hand/foot holds.
These steps are nice in that they allow you to climb a tree easily and safely. They are sturdy and strap to the tree well. The one glaring annoyance I have is that I ordered two sets of them (6 sections total) and paint was chipping off every single section.
Like I said, they serve their purpose in getting you up and down a tree, but I feel like large amounts of paint should not already be chipped off when I open the box. If you don’t care about paint chipping or if you are going to repaint them anyway, these are great.
It includes the treestand, Hunter Safety System 30-ft. Lifeline, Ranger Traction Four-Pack Climbing Sticks and an exclusive footrest. Oversized grip-mesh treestand platform sports a memory-foam seat that conforms to your body, ensuring premium comfort while you wait for your prey.
Very comfortable, quiet stand. I now own two of them. Fairly simple to assemble. I’m please with all the nylon washers, and the fact all the hardware was actually there. I’ve had problems with hardware missing with stands I’ve purchased from other companies in the past.
A little on the heavy side, I wish it was offered in an aluminum version. I really like the cruzr bracket that is made to go with this stand. It helps make hanging the stand a lot easier and safer.

Saw this XOP stand while I was looking at reviews for Lone Wolf Stands. Gotta say, for a couple extra pounds the XOP Maximus XL platform size is definitely worth it to me, at the same price or just a shade cheaper than alone Wolf.
I am getting into hang-and-Hunt type public land hunting for the 2019 season, but I believe this stand will be an absolute treasure for prehung setups on my private land and should be awesome on hang and hunts on public.
All in all, for the same price to comparable brands with smaller sized platforms, I believe this is going to be a good addition to my arsenal. very comfortable seat and size.
I got the air raid thinking it would be better for my style of hunting. If I had it to do over again Id get the vanish. Im not knocking the air raid the quality is top notch, seat is great, and packs flat.
Great stand not to be overlooked. Great company to buy from shipped fast and arrived ahead of schedule even during the Christmas holiday.
