    I'm setting up a new lease and I'm thinking about getting a nicer stand to use with my 20' ladder/steps. I'm considering the Millennium M150, but thought I'd see what you'all recommend. I want a comfortable seat and a wide platform... not minimalist which is what I'm used to.

    Millennium lock ons are awesome!! Very comfy and easy to set up. I also have the Big Game Treestands lock on stand. I cant remember what it's called but I will check when I get home.. Either way you can't go wrong with any of the Millenniums.

    Millenium Hang-on stands are the Most Comfortable stands on the market!! Easy to hang with the Cam Lock system they use. Buy the M50. You will not regret it!

    I have a Lone Wolf Assault and love it. Light, super quiet, and with the EZ hang hook a breeze to hang. I use the offset bracket still, but with a paracord loop to hang on the hook while I get it strapped down. Works great.

    I am selling it and the sticks actually but can't ship it so I only have it posted locally for pickup.

    This and don't forget the cold weather pad they sell. For me it was a little difficult getting out with out much movement until I put this in place.

    I'm a big fan of Lone Wolf and or XOP tree stands. I have a Lone Wolf climber and an XOP Air Raid. Really comfortable seat on the Air Raid and plenty of room.

    Look at Hawk stands. I have the Hawk Helium XL. I could sit for days in that stand and be comfy. Nice and light and well built!!

    XOP Maximus at Field and Stream for $179 is what I'd be picking up

    They also have one of their own branded stands that has a cast aluminum platform and a Millennium of Big Game looking seat on it for $129

    I was liking the Muddy stands until the merger with Big Game...now junk.

    Hawk seems like they are putting out decent stands.

    All those other steel grated stands are junk IMO and flex or creak like crazy after a few years.

    i'm a fan of the lone wolf and XOP. Looking to get their new Vanish XT once it comes out. Probably not as big of a platform that you are looking for though. I've sat in a Millenium once and they are very comfortable but dont they have chains for strapping to the tree? I much prefer a stand that has a strap like the lone wolf or xop.
