I would say a good climber is more important than new arrows or a high quality bow because you certainly are going to have trouble shooting something when your climber falls down the tree and you are left dangling by your harness! It is all about safety for me because being a med student I got to see a couple bowhunters come into the E.R. I was working at who had fallen out of their climbers! (and they were dumb enough not to have harnesses on...[:-])

I have a summit backpacker ss I love the tree stand vert lite it is only 14 or 16 lbs BUT I am a larger frame guy so the handles on the side limit my mobility when I wear heavier gear..I bought a few ladder stands now and am looking to sell it..

I would get the lightest treestand that i can. I think they are to heavy, but i use one. I have 3 and they are all as little as i could find them.
