Hey guys,

I am in the market for a new (or for that matter a used) climbing treestand for bowhunting. I was going to get you guys opinions on which one ya'll thought was the best...(light weight, easy to use, safest, etc...) I am 6'5'' and about 250 if that helps with what you might recommend. I would appreciate any info and if you know of anyone that has one and might be willing to part with for a fair price I might be interested. I am located in DFW. Thanks for the help.

I have a Summit Viper and love it, almost to comfortable. My brother has an API Grand Slam (I think thats what is called), I have hunted out of it and it is super comfortable also. I am thinking of buying a Summit 180, (I love to hunt facing the tree) and let my boy have my Viper.



Death is certain and the end is always near.

I own two Summits. One is the 180 Max SS which is like a lazy boy attached to a tree and the other is the Open Shot. I fit nicely in both. I'm 6'0" and 285 lbs.
