Default Climbing stand - need thoughts

Hunters-

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...

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.
