CHEAP. LIGHT. Hang on stand...

Unread postby PK_ » Sun Dec 30, 2012 1:15 pm

I am not a big fan of bone collector and could not find reviews on this stand but walmart is selling this small, lightweight hang on for $79:

For an extra $10 they offer it with 3 of the 'rapid rails':

Free ship to store, not bad. It was only an extra 3$ to ship to my house...

I still plan on getting a LW but this will hold me over for now, unless I receive it and hate it, but I think it will suffice.

Just wanted to share this deal for any other Beasts on a budget.

I bought the combo.. Although it is very lite...10lbs, it is not quiet or stealthy. Would not be a great mobile stand IMO.

I didnt have a problem with the stand being quiet, other than the seat cushion. The cushion has a thin camo on the outer edge. That thing is crazy noisey in cold weather.

For what it cost I think it is a very good deal. Light weight stand, very easy to set up and be portable with.
Large platform, wide seat that is actually comfortable.

I dont use rapid rails though...there make a lot of noise when you step on them the first time during setup.

I seen the stand selling on ebay for a little over 60 + shipping, so one thing is for sure, if you dont like it, shouldnt be too hard to recoop your $. Especially once the market flood is over from WalMart.


Thanks for the heads up on the deal. I am sure there are some on here that can use something like that at a bargain. Makes a pretty nice prehung setup.

Ha, that same stand and rails combo deal was selling for $49 a week or two ago and they bumped it up to $89 fast because the online forums spread the word. Archery Talk members alone bought more than 1,000 sets in two days according to the 20+ page thread. There were several posts about it here. I bought two sets for $100 to my door. Can't beat it for that price.

You get what you pay for. Looks similar to ameristep stands, which are NOT stealthy or quiet. May be good for a permanent stand?

Guess I meant its loud compared to my Lone Wolf or Gorilla scout. It's hollow tubing just echoes when bumped . I also disliked the bracketing where it attaches to the tree.. It is a nice stand for the money. Seat cushion is awful too.

Compared to the LW and Scout you are exactly right! I love my Scout. That thing is so easy to setup and quiet as can be. Wish my LW stands had the seat and cushion from the Scout.

You know I had forgotten until you mentioned it, the bracketing where the Ameristep attaches to the tree did catch my attention while hanging one. Think they could have used a much better design there.
