treewalker stands

I'm in the market for a new climber.the reviews I can find all seem good ,does anyone have or use one?I like it says you can go up a tree as small as six inches,which is good,not a lot of big trees where I'm at.

Santa got me one. I unpacked it and put it on a tree today (just 3 feet up). The instructions that come with the tree say 8" (even though the website says 6").

First impressions are: roomy, grips the tree like crazy, alot bigger than my lone wolf (in both comfort on the stand AND packed dimensions), packs 1000 times easier than the lone wolf (top and bottom are press fitted together (no bungee cords needed)), not as quiet going up the tree as the LW, but solid and quiet at height (at least the 3 feet I was at).

I will follow up after PA flintlock/NJ muzzleloader to share my experiences.

I ordered it right from the website, http://www.treewalkertreestands.com/

I bought the ProMag LT.

This looks to be the stand that replaces my Lone Wolf, at least for later season sits.

I cannot believe how light it is based on it being so big and roomy.

I wanted something roomy that I did not need to break down (like the lone wolf) when packing up. Looking at the API, the Summit, and the Treewalker. The treewalker ProMag LT comes in very close to the summit goliath (I'm too big for the regular viper) in terms of price. The treewalker fits larger tree diameters than the summit, lone wolf or API.

I have yet to find any bad reviews of the stand.

Right now, I plan on keeping my lone wolf for early season archery when I do not need to pack in cold weather clothing and I am going into relatively thick stuff. The treewalker all other times I use a climber. We'll see how that goes after the PA/NJ late seasons are over. First sit in the treewalker will be Saturday or Monday.

Re: treewalker stands

The right tree never seems to be where it is needed for a good tree stand location. It is hard to find 6/8" trees without limbs allowing the use of a climber.

Also smaller trees tend to move a lot with the shifting of weight by a hunter to prepare for the shot and/or a little bit of wind....

Re: treewalker stands

Had 2 hunts out of the treewalker so far and am VERY IMPRESSED! First hunt was out of a tree where I guess the diameter was 2 feet (approx 24"). I would have never been able to do that in another climber. Second hunt was out of a small diameter tree.

Stand is solid, grips better than anything else I have tried, packs easily (not smally, but easily). Pretty comfortable with the chill pad. Easy to get into and out of the heater body suit while up in the tree. Visible "damage" to the tree due to the gripping mechanism was not an issue that I thought it would be.

I should have bought this stand much sooner.

I'll give a more thorough review after late season, but it gets a thumbs up from me.

The cable that wraps around the tree is encased in plastic, and that is not as quiet as the lone wolf belt if it scrapes against the tree (while climbing). If I take my time with it and do not scrape the tree bark, it is fine. Just something i did not have to be concerned with climbing on the lone wolf. I do plan on putting some type of moleskin / felt over the plastic to quiet it down.

Once it is set up, it is quiet. No clangs, creaks or pops in the cold weather. I was out for 3 four hour sits in the last 4 days and no issues.
