Default Most comfortable Treestand.

I just wanted to get everyones opinion on the most comfortable treestand for bow hunting. I have been wanting to try an all day sit but i don't have a tree stand that is very comfortable.

Thanks for the help and good luck.

I use 2-API Grand Slam Extreme Magnums, a Summit would be fine as well...I can't get comfortable in a loc on so I quit using them years ago...

good luck, I can normally go for 3 to 4 hours and after that I have to stand and do whatever to get mobility and blood flowing again.

Millenium Treestands....if you are told different then it's because they haven't hunted from one.

I have a 2 person ladder stand by field and stream that I use at one of my spots. Very comfy for a cheaper stand.

I use both summit viper ss and old man multivision.Both are very comfortable,but if I set in there for more than 5 hours I have to strech my legs.

..... As soon as you start cutting weight you start sacrificing comfort, I've hunted in some of the heavy models and I personally have an open shot (14lbs) and cannot stand to sit in it for more than 6 hours at a time. I bought it a few years back and it's given me a lot of service and its still going strong but for sure I've hunted out of other models and the Openshot isn't anywhere near as comfortable as some of the other ones, and besides that its dang near impossible to fall asleep in because there is no front rail so if you do fall asleep you have a higher risk of falling out.

Just my .02

If we are talking about climbers then a Cougar claw beats the hell out of a Summit and API.
http://www.cougarclawusa.com/treestands.htm

They're 100% made in the USA, rock solid, have the ability to safely level the treestand while climbing, they have a built in foot rest, the cable system is one of the easiest and safest to use, etc... etc...

I wouldn't sit in an Ol'man if you gave it to me. IMO these are some of the most unsafe climbing stands on the market. I can't believe that the TMA would approve these stands.


If we are talking about ladder stands or lock ons then Millennium wins in comfort and build quality hands down.
