Default Gorilla Tree Stands ???

I am looking to get a couple of hang on tree stands. I have been looking at the Gorilla King Kong or something along those lines.... I don't have a fortune to spend to get two millinium stands... but I was hoping someone could tell me a little about the Gorillas... duriblity, quietness, and how comfortable they are for a days hunting....

Thanks for the assistance.

MET

I've used a King Kong before, borrowed from a buddy. It hadlots of foot room and was very sturdy. Comfortable thick seat pad, easy to set up like reloader said,and as far as noise goes,I wasn't familiar with it so I made a little noise. If I owned one and used one on a regular basis, it'd be hard to beat.

My friend has two, and I've used them extensively. They worked just fine and seemed well worth the $, IMO.

I have a Gorilla Kong and a the GorillaField EdgePod, these stands are worth every dime I spent. I love them over any other stand I hunt out of that I own. I will be replacing the rest of them with Gorillas.

i understand the cost of the mill. stands. Are you needing two stands for 2 people, or just two locations? I purchased one last year with a set of their sticks. Then to cut cost, my other two stand locations are using ameristep tree steps from wally world. i also shopped around for other lock on stands and i'm glad i spent the little extra on the mill. It sits comfortable for long periods of time...helps me cut down on movement.

I have a pro series king Kong and its real comfortable. Almost too comfortable! very little noise too. i would suggest buying an extra ratchet strap or 2 though.

I have 3 king kong's w/footrest and 4 kong's w/footrest good for the money. they also havegreat thick paded seats on them also. the only tricky part is to release the buckel to take down. other wise great stand. plan on buying more my self.

I love my Gorilla. It is solid and comfortable. I especially like the leveler. I'd like to have a couple more.
