Iíve for the first time in my life found A rub line in A stand of timber on my lease.Iíve been using cheap lock on stands and I get uncomfortable quick but itís never been A big deal. I now have A reason to spend the money on A stand I can sit all day if need be. So what do yíall recommend. Iím 240 lbs so whatís comfortable for A triathlete with A size 32 waist may not work for me. I can leave the stand set up all year so i donít have to worry about setting up every hunt or anything like that.

Something with a sling style seat (no expanded metal, bars) makes a big difference for me sitting still and all day.
Don't leave it up all year. I would take it down after season, maintenance on bolts, ratchet straps and store until time to back out for the next season.

I would agree with above statement. I always looked for an extra wide model with the sling type seats. Also, a padded back rest and arm rest will make your sit more comfortable!

Take a look at the Summit Ledge stand. They are a simple well made stands with plenty of room and a 300 lbs.weight capacity. The metal frame and platform is powder coated which helps to inhibit rust. The grated platform provides a great non slip surface which is a great benefit when you have frost, snow or other wet condition.
Seasonal maintenance as Always Ready stated is important with any stand you choose.

I bought an inexpensive ladder stand with expanded metal seat. I added a boat swivel seat to the top of it with 4 bolts and washers. Itís more comfortable than the sling and will last a lot longer since itís made to withstand the water!

I'm a fan of millenium stands and their seats if you are going to be in for an all day sit.
