Default Need suggestions for new tree stand!

I am 6'3, 260 and am looking to purchase my first climber. I definately want something with a large seat and platform. I'd like to be as comfortable as possible. What does everyone prefer? Any suggestions will help! Thanks

I have a Summit Viper and an API. I like both of them I use the API more for bowhunting and the Summit for the rest of the season.Both are comfortable and easy to pack in and out.Hope this helps.

Summit Goliath or Summit Titan. I've used Summit, Lone Wolf and API and have always preferred the Summit. As someone else mentioned the Treelounge is another possibility.

I have used a Summit Viper for several years now. great stand. Just remember, the bigger the platform the more weight you are toting in. Between that and my pack that I strap to the stand it's a bit of a load and can lead to some serious sweating.
