    Default Compare Climbing tree stands

    Hello,

    I am going to purchase a climbing tree stand. I have narrowed my choices down between two stands. The first one is the Razor X5 made by Summit and the second one is the Non Typical made my ameristep. If you could give me any pros and cons between the two this would be a huge help to me.

    Thank

    A couple of my staff shooters have the summits and they really like them. The don't pack as well as the lone wolf but they are very comfortable.

    Ther really is very little to compare. Summit is hands down, one of the better stands you can get. Depending on how much you pay attention to detail, they are very quiet while going up or down. Very stable when in position. I've never had a stand as good as this. The seat is pretty comfortable, as I've spent as much as 11 hours a day in mine. If it has one drawback it is that the seat dows not fold back so you can stand and lean back against the tree with ease. You'll be able to get parts and accessories easier for a Summit because it is made here, and not China.

    You can do what you want, but I would recommend the Viper X5. Some guys don't like the bar in front. They have some notion that someday (maybe once in a lifetime) it's gonna cost them a shot at a deer, and it might. But I've had a lot of stands and I find the bar to be very nice for sit-n-climb, making climbing easier and more quiet. It also gives a reference when standing as you can have a knee touching it when you are standing, so it helps for orientation. The same holds true on windy days. When I'm sitting I lay my bow right across the bar in front of me, and sometimes just lean back and take a nap (maybe too often). Just some thoughts.

    Default Lone Wolf

    In your oppinion is it worth the extra money to buy the Lone wolf?

    Not til they come out with a comfortable seat. Till then I consider them overpriced by about $100. I got no complaint with the foot platform. The seat section is what needs improvement for the comfort of the hunter.

    Another brand that I think is coming along nicely is NorthStarr. Take a look at them.

    Check out the new lonewolf climber, it looks like it would be more comfortable
    than the previous model, they are also extremely quiet and easy to pack, and if you use their climbing sticks they attach right to the stand, I do agree that they are priced a bit to high.
