Lone Wolf or Equalizer. Since the Equalizer can be leveled as you climb and and the cable covers are 100 times better than the shrink tubing on Summit cables I don't think the Summit comes close.

I just got a Summit Titan...that is the most comfortable stand I've every had the pleasure of putting my butt in. I've also got a Gunslinger by JRH. It's like being in a lazy boy 25 feet up!

I've got a couple, but the Tree Lounge is my fav.
I love my Tree Lounge. I stay in my tree from dawn to dusk, and nap around noon! It does fall short on other areas however: Very bulky in comparison to most stands, doesn't pack very well (bow hunter), when you stand up it has bounce to it. It also allows for great shooting radius for bow hunting because when you stand up, you are about 3 feet from the tree. Bad part of that is the bounce, and the deer have a better chance of spotting you.

Another vote for the Equalizer. The leveling feature is priceless, I can't imagine climbing without it!

I love my Viper SS. It's the only one I've ever had so I can't speak of any others.

Another vote for the Equalizer, I've had both API and Summit and Equalizer wins hands down.

I bought a summit viper last year, very comfortable and quiet CLIMBING treestand, and easy to setup. The friggin thing just started squeaking when i stand up, I try to move very slowly, but it does no good. Anyone know what i can do to fix the squeaking noises? I was thinking maybe the spray on truck liner stuff and paint over it, something thick and heavy to coat the bottom so it doesnt squeak.

Any suggestions or anyone have this problem?
