    Moon Stands - new treestand design



    The one thing they didn't mention is that it weighs 41.5 pounds. Yowza.
    This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    I like the idea but have a couple concerns. First it loses the lever action of a typical hangon when the platform as lowered, this is 100% dependent on how tight you can ratchet the straps. My second concern is that I can see it not being as stable as you get on bigger trees. The lower contact points look to be about 9" wide and on a big tree I could see those contact points slipping as you get weight out onto the sides especially since it doesn't have the leverage locking it in place.

    That steel seat would definatly need a warmer of some sort. It's not for me but I applaud them for coming up with something other than the standard climber or ladder we see today. This just very well my change some things in the way of tree stands

    Looks like a good option for semi permanent sets. Nice to see someone thinking outside the box.

    It's a really neat idea, I think I would feel comfortable in it. But, the weight... Definitely a semi-permanent sort of deal.

    Would need a pulley anchored to the tree above where you want the stand. Have to be pulled up from the ground for sure. Like the size of the platform though.

    My Half moon stand came the other day. Definitely BIG and heavy. It came with a very thick seat cushion which was a surprise. It will definitely be deployed as a permanent stand. I really like what I see so far. I may buy another half moon stand or quarter moon as they're currently running a 40% off promotion.

    Two concerns:
    1) Diameter of the cut away 9" would be a nonstarter for most trees I'm in.
    2) 41 lbs is not viable for those (like me on NC public land) not allowed permanent sets. If they eventually produce a lighter alloy or cast option (similar to LW) on the other hand

    Some perspective on the size of the half moon vs two lone wolf stands
