    Anyone have any experience with the xop hang on stand. The whole setup is a lot cheaper than the lone wolf hang and hunt setup. Had good reviews I was just curious if anyone on here had any insight before I pull the trigger

    The 2 products are very identical in looks as the guy who started lone wolf now is with xop. I've owned several lone wolf treestands and are top notch. Price difference is because lone wolf has made in USA on product. Xop does not.

    I bought an XOP Hand Climber (not available any longer) a few years ago. Excellent stand. I bought the identical model in Lone Wolf as well. Parts are literally interchangeable. With regard to quality, I wouldn't hesitate on any XOP stand.

    I have the older Air raid, love it. Use it on our private land. I have the quick connect brackets for it. So I have 6 trees prepped with the bracket and cheap screw in steps. Depending on the wind I choose my spot accordingly.

    I also bought the new Air raid and 2 step climbing sticks from them this year. I use that up in Indiana on public land. The new stand is much lighter. The sticks are top notch as well. I highly recommend XOP. Free shipping as well. The last stand I ordered Sunday afternoon and it was at my door on Tuesday.
    Excellent company

    i have the lone wolf assault hang and hunt setup with 3 sticks. The more i use it the more i like it. It will take a little getting used to doing the hang and hunt. I've used mine about 6 times this year and every sit i get quicker at setting it up. As for the XOP my buddy bought the XOP because of the thicker seat and he seems to like it. The lone wolf is pretty comfortable. i could sit in it all day probably.

    I have both seats, the 4" thick XOP and the 1" thick foam rubber Wolf. The XOP is definitely more comfortable to sit on than the Lone Wolf.

    Iv got the hawk helium sticks and a hawk kickback. I can be pulling my bow up in about 12 minutes from the time I get to the base of my tree. Just looking at the xop because that twelve lbs sounds kinda nice lol. I love my hawk kickback stand you can literally hunt as long as ya want in absolute comfort but it’s not the lightest thing in the world. But hangs super easy with the hawk bracket.

    All of my set ups the last couple of years are hawks. Very solid comfortable stands and we got them on clearance for I think mid $60 range.
