anyone seen these, heard of them?...the instructional video is vhs, so it's been awhile. except for the potential to unintentionally undo one on the way up, seems like a neat idea where rapid rails may not fit...

No offense, but that looks like a real pain in the arse!

I really like the way the steps swing out to tighten and lock in. You could easily find them with your feet coming down in the dark.
Too bad it didn't have straps instead of rope.

i actually thought about something like this a couple years back (didn't know anything like it existed though)
one day i see a cheap rope ladder with like plastic pvc rungs for an emergency fire escape...i thought it d be a great idea for tree stands on public land (or private that has a chance of theft) , i was thinking the ladder rolled up nice and was light ...
and if you could fashion some sort of pulley system you could take it with you everytime too, just never took off with the idea ...
never see one in the hunting industry and i am surprised with the popularity of climbing sticks because they would be lighter and quieter ...

Looks like a pretty slick set up to me!

Think I saw that same system at LL Bean. From what i remember, they were not cheap. Neat idea.

Check out http://www.climbpaws.com

another Made in Maine product. They are pretty expensive as well, but they do work as advertised.

nothing is cheap at L.L.Bean::::I like the idea cause you could be out still hunting,find a area where a tree stand would be ideal, set it up for a afternoon hunt,nothing happens load it up and go.

I have 2 sets and they worked great. The nice part is they're compact and can get you up the tree pretty fast and you don't need a perfect tree to use them. Just make sure you use a safety belt or harness.

I have 2 sets(10 steps per set) of Stepp Ladders that I would be willing to sell. If anyone is interested in a set or both sets PM me and we can work out a deal. They are in great shape and are in the original travel/storage bags.
