I haven't used any, but I've heard they are junk. Reviews on Cabelas.com aren't very favorable either. If you buy some, let us know what you think.

There were some out of the package when I went to Bass Pro last night. I played around with them a bit and decided I wouldn’t buy them because they are so noisy. When you deploy the sticks it sounds like someone smacking two arrows together about 3 or 4 times. I tried several times to pull them out of their holder without noise but no luck.

I prefer the "stoney point" sticks. They are quiet and when left deployed they are a good walking stick. I've had mine for 10 yrs, no problems and they have held up well.

I think they are great. Yes, I had my doubts about them at first, but with a few minor mods they turned out to be a good thing. I use them sighting at my local range and I have used them on a few out of town hunts and I also use them hunting on my farm. I will vouch for them!!!
