Suggestions? I need about 5 of them. Anyone make their own?

I made my own without a welder. Upon finishing these I found added material that may have been as good but lighter and cheaper.

Home Depot - 1/2" galvanized threaded pipe.
1 - 5' section
2 - 2' pieces
1 - T fitting
1- 2' piece of 1/4" rebar

Thread T-Fitting to end of the 5' section and put each 2' piece on either side (looks like a T). Its not real heavy and can be broken down easily. I cover with a Tyvek paint suit from HomeDepot or Lowe's.

Drive rebar into the ground for a support stake.

Total cost $22.

I did see the plumbing section has 1/2 " copper tubing/fittings that may work well and be light but would be suseptible to denting.

Hope this helps.

:) Use Pvc pipe 6 feet long sections - One to two inches diameter what ever you prefer- place T joint at top cut for arms the bottom of the pipe should be cut at an angle to drive in ground- very cheap- very light and will last :)

I just take a good coathanger and hang a white shirt on it and hang it on my winger. works like a charm.

I use a black electric fence post and clip my t-shirt (thats on a hanger) on the top clip. The posts can be bought for 1.99 from Tractor Supply

I made my own. I got scrap rebar from a construction site cut it with my sawsall and welded it myself. If you dont have access to a welder you could get a body shop to do them all for you for a 6-pack. I would..

I bought mine from for $19.99. They are 1/2 " iron painted rod with a welded bolt at the shoulder T with wingnut so they fold up. They have either a folding or welded step at the bottom. I cover them with tyvek painters cover suits from the dollar store=$21.00 and no work for each.

Mostly a stickman is a post or something to hang a white coat. It resembles a gunner in a white coat and to a trial dog that's where the birds come from.

Look at and you'll see several pictures of stickmen in actual use on training setups. Scroll down there is more than one pic.
