Climbing stand - need thoughts


Looking for a solid, comfortable and reliable climbing stand -- mostly for rifle hunting.

Any suggestions? Looking for a good stand and a good value. Thanks

I love my Summit climber. It is light, fairly quiet, and has plastic stirrups for quick and easy climbing. Price was about $250.00

The Summits are quiet with that new cable thingy they have. Not bad on weight either. Those stirrups are nice too...

We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

Nothing like a Summit for comfort and stablity. The customer service is first rate.

summit here too

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Summit for me too best stand by far I have hunted out of all kinds of stands after you have had your summit for awhile then you hunt out of somethin else you will remember how good your summit is. The only thing I would do is get the summit skin.

I use Equalizer stands. More expensive but take a look and you will see why. Nothing else on the market can compare. There are a lot of great stands made but this one I assure you will stand out. If comfort and safety are your 1# concerns take a look at this stand. Watch the video.
