    Love the sticks but OMG the packaging

    My eagerly awaited sticks arrived today and I cam home to a "parcel left in garage" slip

    Go to garage and my heart sank as I took one look at the massive box and thought they had screwed up the delivery

    But no its in my name so I open the box and....

    I guess you can only hope they dont require that level of protection when deployed in the field!

    There's a skylark in my heart that wants to get out but I'm too damn clever, I only let him out at night sometimes when everybody's asleep. I say, I know that you're there, so don't be sad. Then I put him back, but he's singing a little in there, I haven't quite let him die and we sleep together like that with our secret pact and it's nice enough to make a man weep, but I don't weep. Do you?

    You won't regret that purchase great sticks particularly in the woods.

    Ahh, it seems you've grasped the wrong end of the stick(s) as it were. You see what you have actually there is a free lightweight portable cardboard hide that can be coloured as you please and will accommodate up to 4 stalkers. I've no idea what that tripod thingy is though.

    I was once sent a Nokia 2610 in a box not much smaller than that - actually it was four boxes, like a matryoshka doll.

    Your sticks will have been put in that box due to length & standardised boxes - cheaper than the time taken for a zero hours minion to hunt up a better fit.

    At least your complaint is not connected to damaged goods due to lack of packaging / poor handling.
