Default Climbing Stands

Any climbing stands you guys like? I am looking for something that is safe, quiet, easy to use and can support at least 250lbs. Thanks

XOP Enforcer from

Identical to a lone wolf sit and climb for a fraction of the price.

Been using a summit for close to twenty years, have hunted out of others in that time(tree lounge, old man, api) , but summit is by far my favorite. Old man would probably be my second choice

I use a stand that is no longer made.. A northstar climber it's all aluminum and very light similar to a summit open shot and maybe lighter.....

If you can find one BUY IT!

pic is same as mine.. I modded mine with summit stirrups and old man cables just like the way it works with the old man cables

Default The Impossible Dream

Never saw a perfect tree stand. Especially one that , ha, only holds 250 lbs. I think most 16 year olds coming on the market are 240 lbs these days.

I have an older stand. It wasn't perfect. I tweeted it for more quietness. Rehabed the seating myself. Stand is now unavailable. Company is out of business.

Know its pluses and minuses. Ha, and it only holds 250 lbs of weight. And they're is no company. If I didn't carry the stand into and out of the woods, I'd have to put on warning stickers.

Warning: Stand Only hold 250lbs

Warning: No Company to Sue: Out of business.

Warning: Repair parts available in a Hardware store.

Warning: Stand upholstered by present owner.

Warning: Stand quieted by present owner.

Warning: Stand doesn't use metal wires.

Warning: Stand, new, didn't cost $300.

Ha, a lot of hunters wouldn't want my tree stand.
