I also used an API Grand Slam for years and it definitely got heavier every season! I bought a Summit Viper before last season and I love it. Light, steady and easy to climb with. Love the rapid climb stirrups. Strongly recommend Summit.

Go with a summit . Very comfortable . The open shot is a good choice

Look on Ebay for an old Loggy stand. The first Loggy came out where you only needed the base. It hooks to your feet and you shimmied up the tree. The single piece is the lightest around, allows you to attach your back pack to and put it on your back. Its also extremely quiet. I've bought another one not too long ago off ebay since they aren't made anymore.

Here is one below. Forget the climbing aid included with this one. The key features to look for is the base of the stand that touches the tree. notice this one has a smooth arch. For some reason, Loggy experimented with 2 feet extending from the uder support bars that touched the tree. Thats a bad design. This smooth arch is the one you want.


This one below looks to have those feet.

Default A recommendation -your research



What price do you want to pay; how big are you; style you like; width of seat needed; how heavy is heavy for you; do you like open front or need a closed front; would you want one facing the tree. Everybody is different; treestands are different too.

I have both a summit and an old man I love both of them both are light weight but I do like the way my old man sets better than my summit, but when I need to sit all day the summit is excellent!
