Default Hunting Hoist Review

Folks,

Just finished up this review about the Strapper Retriever. Nice product, but a bit noisy. Anyone used one?

I gave it 5 of 10.

Click here for the rest of the review

I just think a rope is better, I guess.

I've used onefor years and actually really like it. I'm not sure what kind of noise you are talking about.

Mine is going No where. It's very convenient and always with me.

It can't make more noise than my cord loaded one! I can't even use it with all the noise it makes, sounds like a tape measure rolling back up. Does the strapper wind up by itself?

You just wind it up. I honestly like mine. It's much handier than anything else I've used and takes up very little space. It's about the size of a chalk box.

Can you wind it up with your bow attached? How much weight could you do that with?

I just pull the bow up hand over hand and then hang the bow up on abowhanger when I get it in my hands.

I then wind up the Strapper Retriever. I'd say it would not be possible to wind it up with Bow attached, not enough leverage.

Mine is bigger then a chalk box. It is plastic. So, when hard things hit it, it makes noise.

You can't tell me that a rope makes more noise and takes up more room!

Now, as far as not getting tangled up, the Strapper winds, HANDS DOWN.

I don't doubt that it makes noise when it bumps something, i was just making sure it did not make noise when it "reels" in.
Thanks

My Bow is metal, my treestand is metal, my arrows are carbon, and my rangefinder has a plastic case. All things can't be made out of rubber & fleece.

Part of being quiet is the Hunters resposibility. I never have any trouble with mine. I can't walk in total silence either. I sure wish I could fly!!

It'd be handy while you go Bowhunting! Swoop down and land in your stand! That'd be Sweet!!
