On the first day of the 2024 Archery Trade Association (ATA) Show, Trophyline introduced its new HyperLite series of climbing sticks and platforms, creating a buzz across the saddle hunting community.
Us saddle hunters love lightweight gear, and Trophyline has seemingly set the bar with this new line, which was four years in the making.
“Our HyperLite series of platform and sticks are made of a new proprietary material called Magnite™,” said Nick Betts of Trophyline. “Magnite™ is 33% lighter and 22% stronger, 110% harder, and has three times more vibration dampening that current aluminum.”
He went on to say that a carbon fiber stick with the same strength would be 50% heavier than the Magnite™ version.
HyperLite Climbing Sticks
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the specs on the HyperLite climbing sticks:
- 16 inches step-to-step
- 9 inches wide
- 3.4 inch step depth
- Weigh just 17.5 oz each (4.4lbs for a 4-pack)
- 300 lb weight rating.
- Suggested retail price of $449/4-pack
Additionally, the sticks have a quick and silent amsteel attachment method using new QuickHitch Tabs.
The sticks stack flat against one another, taking up just 5 inches of depth for four sticks.
And best of all, they are made right here in the U.S.
As for the HyperLite platform, its specs include:
- 12” x 12” platform
- Weighs in around 2lbs
- Suggested retail price of $299
The platform has a similar design to Trophyline’s popular Onyx platform, but with all the reduced weight and improved strength benefits of the new Magnite™ material.
The leveling system has been updated and is now incorporated into the post. It can be adjusted with ease while in the tree.
When you combine the four sticks and platform, you now have a complete system that weighs less than 6.5lbs.
Trophyline’s new HyperLite climbing sticks and platform will be available this summer. They have not announced pricing at this point. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available!
