The brute light is the one I am looking at.
Any one have one? How do you like it? I need something lite to carry as a few health problems restrict me. Any advise as to what is lite and good?

Thanks, Stan

I dont think they get much lighter than a lonewolf...and if they do, I doubt they match a lonewolf's quality. I know they are expenseive but will be satisfied.

I own both and my Lone wolf is the one I use.The TT actually is lighter but it doesn't carry as nice as the LW.Nothing wrong with a TT but the LW is much better.

I have the legend lite and love it. I walk a good mile up the mountain every morning where I hunt and never mind it on my back. My father is 69 and has the brute lite and I know he wouldn't trade it for the world, and yes sorry but by all means the quality is there and the comfort for that all day sit.

I'm not bashing the stands at all.I think they're decent.I actually have a legend brute lite and a baby lite.I gave the brute lite to my BIL a couple years ago when he started bowhunting again.The baby lite I use during rifle season because it has a rifle rest on it.They're lite but they aren't as light as they advertise.Still,they're lighter than just about anything else out there.I do like them for hunting with a rifle because of the rest,you have a place to lay your gun on and they're plenty comfortable.They aren't my first choice for bowhunting however.I hate having a bar around me when I bowhunt.I also like the fact that I can set up my lw and get 20 feet in the air much more quiet and fast.The LW is actually a little heavier but they pack so nice,that they just feel lighter than they are.I think a TB would be a real good choice for use with a crossbow.

I only use the TT for rifle season but it will be a good climber when my son is old enough to use it.Nothing at all wrong with them.I'm glad I have one but it won't replace my Lone wolf.

I've used a treelounge for a number of years now and really like it. Super light (don't know how it compares to others though), easy to climb with, and pretty comfy, though every year I swear I'm going to get my daughter to sew me a pad for it. It has a number of attachments- rifle rail, gun rest, bow stand, etc. Since I've only used it for rifle, I tried to keep it a light as possible and left most of the extras off, only keeping the gun rest.

I have 7 tree stands. The Brute is the one I use to carry in and hunt public lands, where I carry in and out the same day. Light and easy, been using it about 8 years since my open heart surgery.

I'm not sure I like the self-leveler. Doesn't hurt but I usually get them level without it.

Never thought of the Timbertall as cheaper than anything!
