I have several stationary ladder stands out, but think I want to try a climber. I'm a full grown boy at 250+ . I want one with a foot rest and shoting rail. Something quiet and easy to carry( light ). Money is always a concern but safety is # 1,# 2,and # 3 concern. What are ya'll's thoughts ?I have made a few posts on this web sight and always got great advice. Thanks in advance.
Summit is the way to go. If you are 250+ go with the Goliath. I bought one last year and it is like having a big ol Lazy Boy in your tree. Comfy and rock solid. It will run you $269 to $299 depending on where you buy it.
A bad day hunting or fishing beats a good day at work....anytime !!!
Summit Goliath......Mathews bow......2 day work week....Is This Heaven?
I am 6'4", 250 and am very happy with the Summit Revolution. Sadly though it is no longer in production. Their Python model is probably the closest. However, considering your request for a rail and footrest I would opt for the Viper Ultimate. I believe it was offered with both.
