Re: Need Help with Climber
I have no issues with my summit after getting used to it. When I am setting up in the stand. I shift my weight left and right and it really bites in the tree.
Are you keeping a good enough angle on your plat form and the tree. I feel this is important with these cable type climbers. You want the cable to be angled when wrapped around the tree at the same angle of where they come from. If they are parralell with the platform it wont grip as well.
I also found that sit and climb climbing helps dig the seat section into the tree better. When you get to your desired height, sit on the bar, IF present and shift left and right a little bit. Should help dig those teeth in.
I also don't like to climb trees where only the outside teeth bit the tree. I like a tree that I can get about 3-4 teeth into the bark to feel safe.
Hope that helps.
