Treestands and heigths???
 
I have used many ladder stands, and they dont bother me, I have recently bought a tree lounge and have tried it a few times in the backyard, Its very solid and comfortable.
I tried it today and got up to about 15ft.
My problem is I have a fear of heigths; Would a lock on stand with a climbing stick be more secure feeling?? The one I like has a rail and sling seat by strong built.

I feel the most secure in my Sumitt Climber... I would rather be up higher in that than anything... usually up 20-25 feet in climber, if the trees will allow for it... lock on & ladders 15 to 18" max... I am less comfortable in them.

I have had a tree lounge for about five years and I usually go up about 30' with it and have no problem. but I dont mind hights. I have the bowhunter package on mine and stand on it all the time and I weigh about 250. No matter how high you go you need to have a good safty system.

The more time that you spend up in the tree, the more confidence you will have. Be safe and wear your harness too.

like said above the more time you spend up there the more confident you'll be.. I have a climber thats 4 years old but i use it as a hang on, just put it up and use a nice 16 foot ladder...

i used a climber ounce.. and didnt like them too well it was solid, but i use the gorilla kong hang on tree stand with 20 ft ladder... and instead of just sing the chain to tie it on.. we also use a ratchet strap so it really is solid!! hope it helps

Thats what Im thinking of trying, I did sit in the stand at about 15ft again, It was a little better this time. I think the lock on would be quieter and easier when getting in too. If I use the climber it will remain on a tree on my lease, so i wont be packing it, theres still some noise with climbing.
