Hurray!!! Hawk Helium Sticks are shipping

Postby swd » Fri Jun 07, 2019 8:34 am

I just got the email that my order of the new Hawk Helium sticks are processing and getting ready for shipping.

Now if I could just get the same news on my Tethrd saddle order that has been in limbo for 3 months...

Figured I would post an update. Their idea of getting ready for shipping and mine are not aligned...

No updates since my original post. I called customer service Friday. She said the sticks are in the country and should be shipping "soon". On a happier note, I do have a tracking number on my saddle. The bad news is that UPS has handed it off to USPS for the last mile. I may never see it knowing the efficiency that has become our postal service.

My sticks and saddle have arrived! Now I just need time to try it all out. I will be using the Podium platform from Out On a Limb.

Good luck all! The season is almost here. Bow is tuned and practice is underway.

You aren't kidding there!!! Practice is definitely going to be required for this setup. I am scheduling at least 1 hour a week in the woods until deer season to practice with this stuff.

I have never used climbing sticks. I used pole spurs to climb when I was a teenager and have not been up a tree in anything other than a climbing stand in the last 30+ years. I really like the sticks and am relieved that I chose the Heliums. They are pretty light for 3 sticks. The double steps were definitely the right call.

The saddle is comfortable and feels really solid. I also have the Podium from Out On a Limb. It is rock steady.

I am very happy with this setup. I just need time up and down the tree to dial it in. I am also making sure to do the walk through the neighborhood to the woods nearby to test out various methods of packing it all in and out.
