IM LOOKING FOR A NEW STAND, I HAVE A STAND FROM WALMART I THINK IT IS SOMTHING LIKE ARTIC CAT OR ARTIC CABLE , API IS ALSO ON THE BOX, IT HAS THE FULL RAIL IN FRONT IT CAN BE USED AS A REST OR I USE IT AS A BUILT IN BOW HOLDER ,,,, IM LOOKING FOR SOMTHING JUST LIKE THAT MINE IS IN CRAPY CONDITION DUE TO MY YEARS OF ABUSE ON IT ,,, THANKS IN ADVANCE
I personally use Gorilla stands. I never found a faster more comfortable stand. I've been in a bunch and this is the easiest. You'll notice a lot of guys on Outdoor channel using them. Best stand for the money if your not using a climber!
OUTFITTING THE EXTREME HOG HUNTER AROUND THE WORLD!
I have a few climbers - two Loggy Bayou's and a Summit. I use each for different situations.
The Loggy one-piece is super light, but small and dangerous. You have to hug the tree and pull yourself up. I'm in decent shape, so it's no big deal - I use it for deep woods hunting, where packing a 20 pound stand is out of the question.
I have a Loggy QuickDraw (now known as the Illusion or Vision or something). It has a shooting rail and is wayyyy comfy. It's just too heavy for bowhunting, and I don't like a railing for archery.
The Summit Bushmaster is my favorite archery stand. No railing, but super quiet, super fast and super comfy.
My next stand will be another Summit. They're pretty user-friendly.
i have a new buckshot magnum on the board ill let go for $300 buckshot stands are by far the best all welded construction, no bolts like alot of the stands, 300lb capacity, extra large platform thank you
