I'm sure you will get a ton of different answers to choose from.

I personally like Loggy followed by Summit

I love my loggy bayou climber.. but a summit would be my next choice. I have several friends that have them and they're really nice stands. I really like the cable setup and the ability to adjust the angle of the stand once you get to the height you're gonna hunt at.... don't have the sit there w/ the stand aiming up a bit.. or worse yet.. aiming down w/ the feeling that if you move you're gonna fall.

You can never go wrong with a Old Man Grand Vision stand. Definately Quiet,safe, comfortable and easy to climb.

My personal opinion is the Summit Viper XLS or Goliath first, then the Lone Wolf Alpha Sit and Climb second. I have owned both brands(and API too)but now use the Viper because the Lone Wolf was just too small and uncomfortable for me to sit for extended periods of time. Both companies make an excellent product, stand behind them and have great customer suppot should the need arise.

I love my tree lounge, it takes some practice getting it on the tree quickly and quietly, but once you figure it out, you can sit all day no problem!!!
