    Hands down the m150 monster. I know you said cost doesn't matter but if you wait til ebay does whatever % off everything you can grap that stand for under $180. $215 is the cheapest you'll find otherwise, hope that helps!

    I have had a $400 Cabelas gift card since last year, I work right on the other side of 94 from Cabelas, less than a 10 minute drive to get there.

    One thing I’d do is the seat seems to be a bit cold in the winter being breathable. Maybe make a cover of some sort to go over it or just bring pad. That’s the only complaint with my millenniums

    I got the stand together and strapped it to a tree pretty impressive and the leveling is easy and quick.

    Width and diameter are the same, circumference is the distance around the tree. 3.14159 x diameter = circumference.

    Brutus maximus is double the price you can get the m150 for and a much less comfortable seat, no thanks.

    I own both the m150 and three different size wedgelok stands. The chippewas a better stand all the way around

    Maybe but not at the price point on camparable sized platforms, which is what the OP was looking for. If you can afford them, more power to ya.

    True but that’s when you really notice it compared to a non mesh seat.

    Not available at Cabelas and it was a gift card purchase and I am not sure what features would be missing from the stand that would justify spending more. It won't be carried in and out so the stand is perfect for me the platform size was the most important to me. Chippewa also does not have a rail on the front of the platform and the seat looks cheap and uncomfortable.
