I thought the same thing, until I used a set. It’s worth it and believe me, you won’t know until you try them.
Unfortunately....there is nowhere to try them or even hold one. Its a blind faith $400 leap.
That’s what’s great about the Internet. It’s not really a blind faith ,the consensus over the last few years is these things are incredible. I’ll take that over holding them for a few minutes inside of a store.
....I bet if I go on the Chevy forum, they tell me how great chevy's are....and same with the Ford forum. Whether good or bad when it comes to tree climbing equipment there seems to be a severe lack of objectivity. For whatever reason people are ridiculously emotionally invested.
I appreciate the offer to try them. Very nice of you guys. For me, they just don't have appeal. The original steps are too far apart, I've tried with a bunch set at 22", and I have to carry too many of the shorter guys. I dislike the packing options of the solid double steps, and I feel the pivoting stand off is essential.
I am sure they are great, and I am glad so many are supporting all the hard word of these fellas. Very loyal folks you are.
