This off season my goal was to modify and fine tune it a bit, and to that end I ditched the super mount bracket for a lone wolf batwing, eliminated some extra straps on the molle pack straps, wrapped the seat post, installed stick talons, and am working on wrapping the outside rail with paracord.
I only tried the stick talons once so far. I need to work on not clanging the stick on the platform when I pop it out, but otherwise they work great. I have the 20 inch sticks so the stick talons are close together. Longer sticks would possibly be easier to remove, but I like the rope system and dual steps on the muddys. I hang my bottom step high and use an aider to gain a couple more feet.
How many muddy pro sticks are you packing in, and how high are you getting on average?
I use 4 sticks and with the aider it's right around 16 ft.- probably not more than that. My aider is just a safety belt off of a cheap harness that came with a stand. I loop it around the bottom step and with the buckle on the bottom it holds it spread open. There are times when more height would be nice, but for me in most cases it's high enough.
