I see some are advertised at 11.5 lbs and some are 14.5 lbs for 4 sections. Which is right, or is are they two different models?

I know they had a double wide aluminum version that is now discontinued, that may be what you are seeing. Other than that it may be the steel ones.

Nope definitely aluminum, and definitely the standard width. I will post a few links later! For example, cabelas has them advertised at the lighter weight than what is advertised at basspro or the ameristep site.

Ameristep advertises at 14.5 lbs and Bass Pro is the same for the aluminum non-typical rapid rails.

Not sure where you are getting 11.5 lbs.

Great product though!

11.5 lbs @ Cabelas.

Non-Typical Rapid Rails


Four independent sections conform to crooked trees
Bent-rung design improves footing
Adjustable strap-and-hook assembly
Simplified setup and compact transport are the main advantages of this lightweight, ladder design. Four independent sections do not plug into each other, allowing them to conform to crooked trees. Each section stacks on top of the other making it easier to carry. The bent-rung design improves footing and promotes an upright body position during setup and climbing. Adjustable strap-and-hook assembly quickly secures to the frame for easy attachment to the tree. Just tighten the strap by hand and step onto lower rung to set. Push the adjustment spring button to release strap tension for removal.

Weight: 11.5 lbs.

Weight capacity: 300 pounds.

Had to look up what "rapid rails." were.

Naw, don't expect to use them. I went hardball on myself twenty years ago. If I wanted weight to climb a tree, I had to make sure I was in shape to use them.

Bought one aluminum climbing stand that weighed 21 lbs. One weight, haul in and haul out, "rapid rails built in."
Spent most of my climbing money once, except for buying some new soft foam from a fabric center for the seat and back.
Paid once and don't look for lighter. Believe in being hard on myself. If it was lighter, I could still complain. Glad I took my way years ago.
