Favorite Climber

10 posts in this topic

I am looking at the summit lines. Who else makes a great climber? I want something that is easy to use and easy to pack in and out of the woods.

I've been happy with Rivers Edge Gator Jaws. It's not the lightest or the quitest to assemble, but I've shot a few deer with it in limited use. For $80, the price was hard to beat. It's a very safe, stable stand, although I would guess most climbers would be.

I am definitely a summit guy. I purchased the summit bullet backpacker a couple of years ago and it is the SAFEST stand I think I have ever had. I chose the bullet because of the front enclosure. I stand when I shoot my bow, and I can lean out to the point my thigh rests on that front bar. I don't feel like I could fall out of it because of that.

The definite plus to this stand is COMFORT. I can sit in that stand all day and not have legs that get cramped up or fall asleep. Heck...If I fell asleep, I wouldn't fall out since it cradles your body and there is a bar all around you.. It's not the lightest stand to carry, but it packs flat, and is only 23 pounds which is not too bad.

You cannot beat a climber for comfort or ease of putting up.

The summit climbers are the best there is in my opinion. Strong, lightweigth, easy to carry, and solid as a rock!

I have used Old-Man climbers for years and lov-em. Fold up flat and the mesh seat is comfortable and sides so you can sit and climb and also some times I sit facing the tree or slide the mesh against the tree.

I bought a Lone Wolf Alpha Sit-n-Climb about two years ago. I really balked at the price (349.99 at the time) but finally bought it. It is my favorite piece of equipment behind my bow and my binos. Light, easy to set-up, and realy comfortable.

I just bought the Summit Razor SS and I love it. It has the front bar but you can fold it under the seat if you don't want to use it for archery. At only 21 lbs you can barely tell it's on your back. Really comfortable too, I'm just afraid I might fall asleep in it. The Summit skin it comes with is a plus too, looks like it would break up your outline pretty good from the bottom.

I to purchased the Summit Razor SS. For the money awesome stand. I agree with the sleeping hazards too. Way to comfortable. Sturdy well build and light. Great buy!!! Ordered direct and had it in 3 days. Kind of like Christmas time when it was delivered. Set up in the yard a few times and shot about 30 arrows at all directions. Recommended!!! Enjoy!!!!

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
