No I haven't looked there. Looks like they have a few options but I don't know which ones are best for Beast styx

Eastern Woods Outdoors is also a good option

I'm interested as well. Let me know what you end up getting. I'm not trusting my safety on something I try to make, having never seen whatever that rope stuff is called.

These work very well and you can invert them when you pack your sticks.

I have four 18" aiders on my beast minis

I’m using the swaider from Eastern Woods Outdoors and I can really stretch the sticks out if wanted I just put the loop over the top step...no searching for an aider and no extra crap to mess with packing with...I can put the top the top step of the stick around forward height (5’8” for reference)

I like the idea of having it already cinched on my foot so I'm not searching for a loose step swinging around somewhere that I can't see. I would have to try it and see if it's doable for me. I watched a Youtube video and I suppose with practice I could do it. :lol:

Those look pretty cool, I like how it isn't swinging around like a rope or strap. But, I don't wanna have to take the bolt off my steps to put those on. Yeah, I'm such a girl. And, 4 of them would be $44 that I could put towards something else. However, if I can't manage a swaider, I'm going to keep this in mind.

You don't nessacarily need 4. They don't flap around which is what I like for stability and not spooking animals.

As far as aiders go these are the bees knees.

I spent more in the shipping into Canada then the aiders actually cost.

Those are solid. That’s what I am looking for as well.

You run those on all sticks? I was just thinking of using for bottom two.

How do you invert them when packing?

I run them on all sticks but may take it off the top stick.

The bolt is snug but not so tight that you can not turn it upside down to have the aider upside down and you can sort of weave it using the strap knob thingy as a guide and it works very well.

I got the 18" because with my arthritis in my knees I can't bend alot and just don't want to risk it. I had the 24" and it was just way too much for me.

As far as aiders go these are the best in my opinion and the website has good customer service.
