    Default Make or buy? - Stickmen

    Looking for advice on stickmen. What is everyones opinons on making or buying? It seems like they would be realatively easy to make a collapsable one, does anyone have any plans drawn up they could offer? Otherwise, what are the decent ones on the market?

    Thanks for the help.

    Buy, Lou Magee! You can't build it cheaper/better/faster than Lou. If you get/got into dogs to save money quit now.

    I made some out of posts, pvc, and t-shirts. Spent probably $30 for 3 of them. Used them for a while but they are a pain to set up, transport, they blow around in the wind. All around, they suck. Ended up buying some. My advice is save your $30 and buy them out of the gate.

    When I first saw one of Lou's out in a field vs. my made ones, I tossed mine and placed an order with Lou. Great quality and great person to deal with.
