    Im thinking of buying this stand but have a few questions maybe you guys could help me with,

    Im a little afraid of heights but want to be high enough to reduce being seen and or winded...do you think a climber would reduce the uneasyness up there? of course I'd be using a harness.

    How quick can it be set up with a little practice?

    If anyone has this stand, what do they think about it?

    THanks!

    get a stack and pack ladder stand. they are only 13ft tall and hold my 360 lbs ass. they feel secure when properly attached to the tree. I think river's edge makes them. i paid around $80 for mine and have had it for 3 seasons now and love it. a little bulky but worth it for me because i dont get along with climbers
    BIG GREEK!!!

    yes. This is a great climber and with the front bar around you you feel so safe you will think you don't need to use the safety harness.....

    How quick can it be set up with a little practice?
    Once you get used to it you ca go up pretty quick. I can get it set up and in the tree ready to go in 5 minutes or less, but I made some mods to mine to help keep it quieter and faster to use.

    You can't go wrong with this stand although you'll need to lose the shooting rest if you're a bow hunter.

    a viper is safe with the rail the goes around you you can take a nap if you wanted to and with how comfy it is you will find your self napping but like you said still wear a harness even if your only 10 ft off the ground i go 30 ft no problem but trees tend to thin out as you go up so check before you climb the hand climber can be adjusted as you go up the platform cant make sure it tilts up before climbing and it will level off as you go up

    Summit Viper is the best climbing stand out there. Very easy to hook up and climb with besides being spacious (as much as a climber is) and also very comfortable. Always use the safety harness.

    What I like about it is you can easily adjust it as you climb to keep it level.....

    A climber feels very safe after the first few times you climb it. The biggest fear I had was like losing the bottom half hahah. With safety straps on it, it's going nowhere. When you stand the thing can wiggle around at first but then it locks in solid.

    One disadvantage of a climber is addition effort to get in and hunt. It takes a few extra minutes to drag the thing in the woods with the rest of your gear. Then you need to rig it and climb it up. Depending on how far away from the road you hunt it may require a great deal of extra effort to pack it in. Then again if you're hunting public land you don't have to worry about theft.

    I guess you could haul it in and chain it to a tree before the hunt.

    Try Cheynne Outfitters or Sportsmans center this weekend. They got some good deals on stands.

    Wait a minute. This post is from May
