Default Summit Viper question

I have the Summit Viper XLS. The tree that I climb is too small for 3 plugs in, yet it is too big for 4 plugs in. When I have 3 plugs in the stand leans down, with 4 plugs the stand leans up. Could I put 3 plugs in on one side and 4 plugs in on the other, or would it not be stable?

Hey Zak....

3 on one, 4 on the other is fine... I've done that too and I'm 205 lbs and never had a problem. My Viper holds me securely without a problem at all. [8D]

Perfectly fine.....doesn't matter one iota. The amount of cable hidden inside the tubing is meaningless. The lug in the shackle is what holds you.

That's the beauty of the cable. Now if it was a solid v-shaped bite bar, then no. They should be even.

Ummmmmmmm, i wouldnt mention that to anyone else if i were you! Just joshin' dude!
Zak, its a great stand, but you will need to replace the cable after a year or two. Just contact will woller with summit stands and he will hook you up. He was in the monster bucks 12 on a hunt at the milk river, he is a great guy.
