Just wanted to check-- you are talking about those stands that stay at the base of the tree right? I've been sort of interested in picking one up... but not for $70
Yup, those are the ones. I don't see it as being all that much different than a comfortable climber that costs $250. An uncomfortable climber or hang-on that costs $100. is still worthless to my way of thinking. The comfort, quality and portability make it worth it to me.
