I am 6 ft and 175lbs. I have used an api original grand slam stand for years. To my dissappointment they have dicontinued this model and only carry the magnum. It has the big backrest and all the bells and whistles. I am a die hard deer hunter and feel the original sling seat smaller version was much more versatile and held less scent. Any other api people have a comment or have any original api for sale. More bells and whistles don't always mean better for the woods.
