Default Ameristep Rapid Rails?

Did anyone ever use them? Thinking of buying some. Just wanted to see if they are worth the money.

They are worth every bit! Buddy Bill and I use them when we can't get in a tree with a climber and don't want to lug in the long sticks. One year there was a really twisted, funky tree that we got in using them. We never could have used sticks on it. The only bit** is that you have to try to cling to the tree while you install the next step up. It will definitely give you a workout.

I use sticks but they are heavy to lug in. I like to move. Are the rails easy to pack with a portable hanging stand?

Bill straps the rails to his climber. He said they pack well that way.

Just bought my first set a couple weeks ago on sale at Dick's. Looking forward to using them this fall.

some of the best things since sliced bread. to ease installation, use your safety harness like a linesmans wrap. helps with a lot of the physical aspect of hanging them. still not used to hanging out in never never land while using them, but gets better every time I hang them.
