    Hard to beat Summits line up, they have several models to suit most anyone. I have a couple of vipers and they have been bullet proof for me. Hardest part is staying awake in them...

    If you never want to buy another one, check out lone wolfs line. They are outstanding, don't let the price scare you. They are worth every penny.

    I've been using an ol'man alumalite and have been happy with it. If i was in the market for a new one i would check out the ol'man drone

    Summit all day. I have a viper and an open shot. Nice and quick to attach/detach from a tree

    I really enjoy my original tree lounge with the bow platform.

    I like mine as well but good gracious that thing is too heavy to carry in mountainous public land on every Hunt.

    Summit for sure. All day hunts no problem in a Summit.

    For me its Lone Wolf, for packability, weight, and platform size...I LOVE my Lone Wolf Alpha Hand Climber! Had a summit before this, also a great choice.

    Can't go wrong with either a summit or Lone Wolf. I've had both and they both have a ton of positives and very few negatives. Good luck with whatever you choose!

    I have known many LW climber people that do not like them... I are one ;)

    Summit is the way to go IMO..
