I have one it is nice it's like sitting in a recliner and its pretty easy to set up and climb but remember to tie the foot climber part to the part you sit in.

I have one and my bro n law has one, but it's to heavy thats all. But very comfy to sit all day long during gun season.

A friend of mine has and i will be purchasing one for next year, like everything it takes some time getting used to setting up and using but overall i like it more than putting on a hang on stand, and alot safer and you can go higher faster.

From experience with a conventional climber, I think the tree lounge might limit you to shooting only in front of you unless you purchase the expensive gun or bow hunter units.

I like the conventional climbers, such as the Summit Viper, because you can stand up with ease and shoot behind you without problems. Plus, your feet is always on the footing part and you don't have to move too much to go up or down the tree: less movement equals less opportunity to play the hanging game. Oh, and you just can't beat porting 21-lbs to your tree.

I've had my tree lounge for over 5 years. Its the most comfortable tree stand I have ever used. Pro's its stable,easy to use, comfortable. Cons its heavy. My sons and I have shot 6 deer out of them rifle hunting. The only time I don't use it is in single digit or colder weather as I just can's seem to keep warm. Then I use a ground blind so I can move more.

I have had one for years. I am 6'5" and I know they have one for tall guys now, but mine is still the best stand I have ever had. I never thought it was that heavy.

Shooting to your weak side can be a problem, I have shot 3 deer in the past 2 years left handed (and missed one) but for comfort and warmth it can't be beat. Not sitting up having your legs go numb from the front of a regular seat is a huge advantage for sitting a long time.

The "square" hole the tree lounge has is superior to other climbers since you can position knots and short limbs in the 45 degree corner and slide right up the tree.

I recommend it. A little practice is in order before you head out tho.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
