I just got a gorilla lt climber stand at gander mountain this week. I went looking for a new stand since mine old one grew legs and left! Wasn't sure what I wanted to spend I was figuring 250$-300$ for a new one. I get to gander mountain and they one left for $99!! I talked to the guy for awhile he said he bought one himself and they been selling like crazy wasn't sure why they were selling so cheap but I figured I couldn't go wrong for $99! I write this from my phone in the new stand. Weight wasn't a big issue for the half mile walk to the location I'm at. Shoulder straps could use some pads. Climbed up the tree great once you get used to your legs strapped in with a bungie cord. I'm roughly 20-25 feet up it's rock soild in the tree. Came with a nice body harness. If your a larger person it can be kinda tight. I'm 160lbs 5'8" and it's very comfortable. Only thing I'm going to add is a bar for a footrest, holder for my bow, and maybe a bag or tray for easy access to my gear. If your looking for a stand and your local gander mountain still has some for $99 I would really look into it. Also to add while writing this I had two amazing turkeys walk right under me and thru. Thick rope beards!!
