The mantis sticks use our dual spine technology allowing for two lightweight tubes to be used instead of the traditional single heavy wall tube. This makes them much more durable and balanced. The mantis sticks have a unique design that pushes the foot pegs at an angle away from the tree, giving the user much more room for their whole boot without the tree getting in the way. The foot pegs have serrated edges with cut outs that will let mud ice or debris fall thru without becoming slippery. Each stick will nest with the other to make them easy to pack in.
