    Long time summit viper user, great climber. I am considering a lone wolf this season just to try it.

    That sling above does look interesting though.

    I'm afeared of heights so my favorite "climber" is an elevator.

    I've been using my LW sit and climb for 17 years without issue. Can't imagine hunting with anything else. Love that stand.

    My customized and silenced Summit Viper SD with the Hazemore Silent seat mod. I can climb 40 ft in about 2-3 min and sit all day.

    Ive been using my summit for over 20 years. Its made like the open shot but was called something else back then. It has the air cushion seat and back rest, s much more comfy than a foam seat.

    Best climber I’ve ever used is a summit Goliath. I’ve had and ol’ Man, and a tree lounge before. The ol’ man wasn’t too bad but the tree lounge was a death trap.

    I have a LW wide sit and climb flip top (I have no experience with the others) but I do like this stand. Easy to carry and climb, silent and to me, very comfortable. I really like being able to flip the seat up to stand to have the whole platform open.

    I have used several. All time favorite is summit viper SD. Light, Quiet, Easy to setup and take down in just a min or 2.

    Used tomcats growing up. Never again. Those jokers are scary and unsafe. I’ve used summit for years. Love my viper. Next will be an open style
