Anyone ever use this stuff on a treestand?
http://www.lancaster...409iidgo8671nb5

In particular I'm wondering about things like...
- How well it holds up.
- Whether it actually silences metal on metal contact.
- If it is slippery and/or noisy when damp and/or cold.
and anything else pertinent.

Boy Jere sims is rather tight lipped about this product. I went to the sims website but even there they don't explain much at all about this product. I haven't seen this before and found they have two of these products, the one you mentioned and one listed as automotive.

Reading over what is here and on other websites it's a "rubberized" coating.... which leads me to believe it's an aerosol version of something similar to the rhinoliner truck bed ccoatings.. That being the case, it might be quite effective at reducing noise. At $19.00 it seems like it's worth a shot. I've had very good luck with products from Sims so I'm inclined to believe they have good products. I've got one of the original S-coils and it still works great, and has no damage whatsoever, despite being on my bow for almost 6 years. My limbsavers that have been on this bow for just as long are the same way. If it's from Sims I don't think you'll be throwing money away.

I'd test it on a small hidden area first just to be sure it will adhere well. Aluminum especially is resistant to bonding with coatings.

If it is truly like spray on bedliners like Terry suggests it will be slick as a greased banana peels when wet. Perhaps sifting some sand on it before it fully cures would work. Some experimentation on some test surfaces with using it would be wise ;)

Leo I think I'm gonna order a can just to see what it's like because I'm REALLY curious now..... I would think it's like the spray on liners, but being from sims, I'm just curious if the "rubberized might be referring to a substance more like the sims vibration dampening rubber that they use for the limbsavers and the S-coil....... hmmmmm EXPERIMENTATION AWAITS!!!! Less than $20 I'll give it a go.

Jer, I have been in the HVAC industry for over 25 yrs. now and I have used a rubberized product for coating condensate pans to silence any metal to metal I have on my stands. Sounds like almost the same stuff. I can buy that product for around 4 bucks a can. What is the cost of this new product? Never mind. I see the price
