Re: To lone wolf treestand users.

In my opinion yes but I bought my original before the prices went through the roof.Nuttin wrong with a Summit though.If I were buying a new stand,I'd probably spring for a LW but I wouldn't get rid of a Summit for a LW.

Yep. I love mine (hand climber). I still use my others though, my LW is my favorite.

Re: To lone wolf treestand users.

Picked mine up a few years ago off ebay for #170 during the off season. Had a Summit before it. While the Summit is a solid stand the LW is much better IMO.

Just thought of something.... used the LW climber all archery season. The one day I used a hang-on I shot my buck. Just wasn't a good tree in the area to use a climber with. Did use LW climbing sticks to get into the hang-on though, lol

Re: To lone wolf treestand users.

My cousin lost all the skin off of his forearms due to a baker...lol
what a day that was. A cherry tree does not make for a good firemans pole...
I have hangons and a ol man climber which I really like
I can sit in it all day and be safe
I'm 6'2 275 and it works well

Re: To lone wolf treestand users.

If you are not a larger fellow and like to pack flat, they are nice. If you are of substantial size/weighgt and desire max comfort while on stand (not ease of packing), then I would say that they may not be the best choice.

I have a lone wolf wide sit and climb, and am looking to get an API/Summit/Treewalker for better comfort.

Re: To lone wolf treestand users.

My API's work great, never had a problem with them. I also had a gorilla that was good but a bit heavy. I like leaner stands as I get older and less agile.

Re: To lone wolf treestand users.

I have a Lone Wolf and an API. The LW is by far my favorite. Quiet, light weight and packs flat against your back.

Worth the money?? YES!
