Before anyone gets upset, I am NOT down playing or criticizing anyone's choice. But I am a climber guy, have been for over 20 years. I currently use and love my 16 lbs Summit Open Shot. I can be in the tree and up 20+ feet in a matter of 2 mins. usually less, and come down even quicker. I know that there are times that a saddle and or a lock on can get you in a tree when a climber can't. for me that may be 5% of the time, and that is a risk I take. But overall, it just seems like a climber is much quicker and easier. But it seems on TV anyways, most everyone is hunting from a lock on, usually, Muddy or Lone Wolf. Have yet to see a saddle hunt. and don't recall a climber hunt either.. I don't get why more don't use a climber because IMHO, it's more practical, lighter, quicker and just overall much easier.. let me hear from you guys that do not use a climber. Why do you not?
