The Slick Rick One-Stick

The Slick Rick is the first one-stick to be equipped with both a folding top and folding bottom platform for incredible packability. Just like the Big BOB one-stick, the Slick Rick utilizies an adjustable top platform to give the user the most comfortable hunt possible. The Slick Rick also includes an attached pull up cable, optimum for an efficient climb.

Benefits of the One-Stick Climbing Method

The one-stick climbing method for saddle hunting has major advantages over the multiple stick and platform combo that most saddle hunters are accustomed to. From the lack of weight to less gear clutter and noise, One-sticking is a great climbing method for both saddle hunters and mobile hunters to stay efficient, mobile, and light.

Weight Savings: One of the biggest reasons most hunters switch to the one stick climbing method is becuase of the weight savings. Depending on where and how you hunt, saving those extra pounds/ounces can be important.

Less Noise: Less gear means less chance for unwanted noise. Stealth strip a B.O.B. or SH1KAR and pair it with a 3 step climbing stick aider and there won't be a tree you can't conquer.

Climb Higher: While not always neccessary, the one stick climbing method will let you climb higher to saddle hunt. The only limit is the ammount of tree you have to climb or the ammount of safety rope you brought with you.

Advantages Of Saddle Hunting

  • Extremely Lightweight Tree Saddles: Tree Saddles are lightweight, making you more mobile. Perfect for the Public Land Owner! Make sure to check out our new Ultra-Light saddle hunting steps for the ultimate lighweight hunting pack. 
  • Little to no noise: With tree saddle, you don’t get the noise typically associated with pulling up tree stands.
  • Hunters Safety: While there have been lots of hunters who have fallen from conventional tree stands, when saddle hunting you are tethered to the tree from the moment you leave the ground until you step back on it after the hunt, making it almost impossible to fall.

    Slick Rick One Stick

    Published by Nathaniel Lambeth, Sr on 5th Mar 2024

    I have been saddle hunting for over 25 years. I have used Bolts, Sticks, Rope/strap on Steps to climb trees. I am 68 years old and was questioning whether I should even try one sticking. I ordered a 14" Slick Rick with the Harken Cam Cleat, and three step 12" aider. I am using Canyon Elite 10mm rope with a MadRock SafeGuard, Petzel Quick Link, 3D printed Rope Stopper, and 40 ' of Dynaglide to retrieve my rope. I will continue using my regular sticks for morning pre set hunts as they allow me quiet morning climbs. I will use my Slick Rick for mobile and afternoon hunts. I have found even at my age and abilities one sticking is easier and much lighter getting to my hunting destinations. I have found if I just take my time it really is not any more difficult than multi stick climbing. One sticking allows me to go to what ever height I desire. My one sticking equipment in total weighs less than 8 pounds. Four Mini Double Step Sticks with cable aiders and a platform weighs in at 18 pounds. I will give the folks at Out on a Limb credit for making a great product. They said it would be 5 weeks for delivery and it was 5 weeks. The online order said something about a 10% discount. I never saw the discount on my order. Since making my order I have seen two listings for 20% discount. I am a manufacture myself. I know material, labor, and shipping cost. The Slick Rick is not "Cheap" but would you want something your life depends on being cheap. I am very satisfied with my Slick Rick One Stick.

    Slick Rick - very nice

    Published by Reggie on 12th Feb 2024

    Went from a Shikar 1-stick with the Scout to a Slick Rick for a little more platform room. Very good design and rock solid. My only negative is that it weighs a little more than my minimalist stick which makes it a little more cumbersome to maneuver around while climbing and 1-sticking. Once the Slick Rick is mounted up in the tree it’s far superior.

    It has been the best hunting tool that I’ve added to my arsenal. It does take some practice. But worth it. I’m faster up the tree than ever before.

    Solid on the tree, the adjustable platform is very comfortable to stand on. I like how flat it folds for packing.

    Slick Rick 12 inch

    Published by Bruce Conroy on 18th Sep 2023

    This is a great one stick. My previous one is the SH1KAR and the Slick Rick is definitely an upgrade. Last hunt I did not even use a platform. I did switch the cam cleat to face the other side, I would recommend facing the cam cleat to one side or the other as an option.

    Like how it folds flat, especially for air travel. Great stable platform that remains lightweight.

    OOAL Slick Rick One-Stick

    Published by C. Stancil on 21st Jul 2023

    Best one-stick on the market! First of all, this is a USA built tank of high quality workmanship and materials. I also have a EWO one-stick, and side-by-side, the quality and craftsmanship are near equal. But the ability to fold the Slick Rick flat gives it significantly greater flexibility for hauling it inside or strapped flat to the outside of your backpack. A folded flat one-stick gives me more room for extra clothing if needed for colder weather. The entire upper platform tilts down by way of an adjustable knurled knob for saddle hunters preferring to lean, and when preferring to sit, it can be moved to a perpendicular to the ground position, making each position more comfortable than before with the non-adjustable EWO one-stick with UP upper platform. Highly recommend this product with 3/16” full bury amsteel, cam cleat, and two step aider!
