Its something Im exploring, but have not come up with yet... I kind of like the bungees cause I attach more than just my sticks, my jacket and camera arm go on it too.


I am with you on attaching stuff to a stand this way.


I love using bungees and would continue to use them for extra gear but it is nice to know that your sticks are attached and set to the stand and if something were to happen and a bungee broke off you wouldn't lose any sticks.

I use about 5 bungees. I get the perfect tightness by tying knots in them... Pretty much 0 chance of loosing stuff. Any type if clip or attachment has to be tight so there is no rattle, but yet come apart silently without a snap or a hard pull that could result in a clank... Bungees just seem to work perfect, not sure why so many are against them. Even if I made a spot for sticks to seat, I still think a bungee is best for clipping it down, and some guys use 3 sticks, some 5... What about the crazy guy who uses 6... I would have to have an attachment that covers any amount.


I’ve been using 2 kwick straps for years. They are simple, quiet and adjustable if need be. Lock down and never allow movement.

I’m with dan here. I think bungees are the simplest most versatile solution to the problem, why overthink it?

I think I am going to use 1/2" threaded delrin rod. The holes in the sticks are perfect for this. Now I just need to find the right nuts.

Im looking for something lighter for sure.. I love my wolf assault hang on but am always open to trying something lighter..

The 1st stand is about the same size as the assault you have, its weight is about 6.5 pounds, its made of solid aluminum much like your assault, but the process of making it allows us to make it less bulky. It has a built in adjustable bow holder... After completion we are going to work on a larger size which should be about 7 or 7.5 pounds (estimation) and be the size of about the alpha.


Can you share any additional information on the stands or an estimated availability?

I can't wait for Dan to release this stand and blow everyone away.

I sure would like to see the Beast at some hunting shows,,,, do not like buying stuff on line, like to buy direct, but I am sure shows could be a hassle.... Just saw those Beast sticks,,,,, lots of thought in those, very nice,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, really bet the stand will be great
