I agree with Smacko. It is by far the most comfortable stand I have ever used. The only draw back I could find is if you shoot sitting while bow hunting, you can't slide around much because of the cables.

The other great part on these is the way they are hung on the tree. You have a block that is attached to the tree and the stand is easily put up, or taken down with one hand. This makes it possible to have multiple ladders and blocks to use just one stand. I have two stands and 5 places that have a ladder and block already in the tree. I won't buy anything else in the future.

ive looked at them and that was the only drawback that i saw was shooting while sitting. I have shot several whil sitting down and think that the strap or cables would be in the way.
Price is good on the site, will definetly keep it in mind

what climbing sticks or rails do you guys use?

I'm hearing Millennium may have a swivel chair lean-to next year that will be out of this world for bowhunting!

I have several different ladders/sticks. Some home made and some bought. The ones I prefer are some that strongbuilt made before they went out of business. They have the 2 side rails with steps so it is possible to put both feet on the same step. Comes in handy hanging blocks or stands. Once you get big insulated boots on you can't hardly do it though.
