tell me about timbertall

I was looking at the timbertall climbers...anyone have any experience with the good, bad or ugly of the stands? What do they mean by "non-adjustable"?

Why do they call it common sense when it is so rare.

Re: tell me about timbertall

I've had two.They're fairly light but not as light as advertised.I had a brute and it was OK but noisy.I also have a baby lite.It's OK but since it's so narrow,you really have to put a sharp angle on the platform if there's any amount of taper at the base of the tree.Te brute wasn't as bad.Also,since the baby lite is so narrow,you're limited at how wide of a tree you can climb.If you find a nice strait fairly narrow tree,it's fine.They're decent stands but for the same money,you can have a Lone wolf which is way better.

You're more than welcome to try mine out if you're interested.I'll bring to my office and you can take it home for a while.

dce: I pretty much agree with you assessment of Timber Tall...did a lot of work to improve mine. However they do take some adjustment as you climb and descend. I have no knowledge of the Lone Wolf.

I think they're better as a rifle stand as long as you use the shooting rail than they make a bow stand.Not a bad stand at all.They're light compared to other stands and stable.To me,nothing beats a lone wolf.

Re: tell me about timbertall

dce, thanks for the offer. I have an old Summit Viper that I really like, but I was thinking less weight. (my Viper is the old clasic...30 pounds) Maybe I would be better off with the newer Viper. I'm not sure about the Lone Wolf...It doesn't look as comfy as the viper.

Why do they call it common sense when it is so rare.

Re: tell me about timbertall

Just buy a wide LW sit andclimb and put a summit seat on the frame.I have one of them as well if you want to try it out lol.I also have the regular sit and climb top with a hazmore net seat.It's not as comfortable as a summit seat but still comfortable enough.I actually use that more than anything.

Not like a TT but you can adjust them with some practice.I think the leveling feature is over rated.When I hook a platform to the tree I just raise it head high so there's just a small angle on it.Most of the taper is at the bottom of the tree.
