Summit Viper Classic Treestand

Thinking of getting the Summit Viper Classic for $190. You guys have any input, thoughts, opinions, etc.? $190 is the most I will spend. What research I have done shows its heavy which is not a big deal if its good and sturdy. Also read climbing straps aren't the best.

I've liked all the summits I've used but I wouldn't want a steel one. I think the classic is steel. Spend the extra cash and get an aluminum one.

It is steel. Is 5 lbs really worth the extra cash? Doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me.

Re: Summit Viper Classic Treestand

definitely worth it. I have the 180 max sd and love it.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

Go aluminum, when you turn 50 your back will thank you.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: Summit Viper Classic Treestand

It's not a 100% popularity poll. I have my needs and judgment; others differ.

I keep using an older tree stand, I take very good care of. It never saw an night, overnight, in the woods, let alone a long winter.

My needs differ from many.

1. a tree stand with a maximum holding weight limit of 250 lbs.
2. Next, a tree stand at or under 20 lbs.
3. Next, get one at or as much under $300. That's hard with a harness included with most stands.

As long as the old one works, it's hard to give up a good paid off tree stand. It meets all three requirements for me.
