Default Climbing stand for a fat guy?

Looking for a climber, and as the title states, I'm not a little guy. I'm about 6foot 3 and 280lbs. Which climbing stand do you guys think would be best/safest for me?

Get the API Magnum, great stand, I have had the Summit the API is better built and stable.

I've never had the API, but I have always felt great in my Summit and I'm 285.

I thought the exact opposite when I got my summit and sold the api.

I always like the cable better then the chain but to each their own.

summit titan would be great for you IMO. I'm a short fat guy(5'8", 300lbs) and the goiliath is perfect for me. i would think the Titan would be a perfect fit since you are 6'3"

Btw, I did use the API aluminum "fat guy stand" a few seasons ago and there is NO COMPARISON to the Summit! The Chains are a joke and make the stand weigh WAY TOO MUCH!

I'm 6'5" and I bought a Titan before I lost 67 lbs (I'm at 260 lbs now). The Titan has more than enough room for me to move around, and my feet don't hang off of the end of the lower platform.
