Best climbing tree stand for crossbow

I was just wondering what is the best stand for a crossbow. I kinda don't like my old 15 year old API stand I think it is too small width wis but I don't want something abnormally large because I'm only 5 ft tall. I also like the lightness of a stand. So what stand do you guys think works best with a crossbow

20 feet up.

Tought to beat Summits. I like the open front models for vertical bows and sit down/ stand up climbers for crossbows. The bar can then be used as a rest.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

+1 for the Summit, comfortable and the rail makes a perfect rest for your crossbow.

Yep. I've got a Summit Viper. I set the seat as high as I can for shooting a bow, and as low as I can for shooting with a rifle (which would also apply for shooting with a X-bow.) Very nice stand.

Re: Best climbing tree stand for crossbow

My first post...might as well get into the action. Check out the TimberTall stands. Super light and they also have a shooting rail. Only thing I changed is the seat. Went with the Summit style seat.
