tree stand recommendations?

i have between $150-200 to spend on a new stand. i would like a 20' double rail ladder stand that MUST have a suspended-style seat. went to cabela's and they had little out to check out and NONE i could sit in to see if i liked it. you at least get to test drive a car before you buy it so this makes little sense-except fot the liability standpoint. the stand i have now has a suspended style seat and is extremely comfortable but they don't make it anymore. most if not all of the stands i found have the metal grating under the pad which i don't care for, if i'm gonna sit in a stand for 10-12 hours it has to be comfortable. just wondering if any of you all have a stand like i'm looking for and can pass along any info. thanks in advance!

I have never seen a factory suspended-style seat before on a ladder stand. (not saying they may or not be out there) I have only seen them in climbers. but there are some nice seat cousions out and I guess you could always cut the steel mesh out and sew up your own suspended seat. biggest consern with that would be leaving that type of seat out in the weather, wouldnt think it would hold up long and most ladder stands are big and made more to leave in untill after seasson or I know a guy that leave his in year round. he packs his own seat cousion in with him.
I made some back rest and seat cousions for my two from an old couch seat cousion. but I still only leave them in for maybe a week at a time. weather is realy hard on that stuff.
