    If you are talking about a climbing stand....gorilla makes a good one for around $100.....Lock on's.....gorilla also makes a good stand for about $45 at walmart. I own both and really enjoy them! JMO......

    That also depends if you are a versital hunter or like to hunt in a more isolated area?? If i had the choice and could only choose one i would go with the climber just because you can go just about ANYWHERE with it and it also goes in and out of the woods with you......IT CAN NOT GET STOLEN!!!!!!!

    all depends on where you hunt and if you know the area well...

    if you know you want to hunt the same spot put a lock on up, or a ladder stand...

    if you're going someplace for the first time and you may not go back and you don't want to get stuck with a lock on there, get a climber...

    I use a Summit Climber, 180MAX ( i think ) had to go with this one because of the weight limits! I was real fat back then, now I'm only fat!! HA HA HA

    SUMMIT!!!

    They are a little pricey at first but worth every penny. Extremely comfortable for all day hunts, easily removable so they don't get stolen and light enough to pack in where you need to go. I love mine and after trying it out once my dad and buddy both bought one.

    ps: never leave you stands in trees if you don't want them to walk off.

    I too would concur with Gorilla. I also really liked my Bigfoot XL hang on. Someone else liked it enough to take it.

    yeah, when you hunt on a unlimited I live in my parent's basement budget.

    Give me $400 and I'll buy a decent climber and 3 hang ons before I buy a Lonewolf. Not because Lonewolf isn't good, just because they cost too much.

    I have a climber. Climbers don't go in every tree I want to go in. Most trees in Ohio have limbs on them. I want to pick my spot, not my stand pick my spot for me.

    that is where the money starts coming into play as the features add to the price...

    if you want an open front or closed front, sit/stand or just stand?, hug the tree or sit and pull? weight requirements?

    Personally I need an open front, I don't shoot sitting down, and I hate hugging trees to climb them, especially in the rain/sleet/snow as they get very slick.

    for all these the Summit Viper series was a clear winner for me. I think I paid 150 used.

    Whats your budget look like?

    Lonewolf and Summit are the best. Consequently, the most expensive. My climber is so cheap, I really don't even know who makes it. It weighs about 80lbs. Good thing I'm tough.

    I started using a Gorilla, it was solid but not comfortable and a pain to carry. I got an 07 Summit Viper used for $125.00; I'll never go back. I'm with Dredly - a comfortable stand is worth it.

    You won't find a Lone Wolf climber for that!
    I currently have one and love it but the Gorilla is also a great stand.
