Just saw on their facebook page that they have some new products coming out. Will be realeased at ATA. They are going to have a hang-on, ladder stand and two different types of ladder sticks. I can not wait to see them in harrisburg. If anyone goes to ATA please take some pictures and give a review.

I used the new sit n climb this past year and it was awesome.

I see their climbers are really lightweight. How comfortable are they? Are they good for all day sits?

I have both the original and the sit n climb. I sat 3 days all day in Ohio this year without a sore butt. They are super light and that's why I bought them. I can take the extra back pack with me now that I usually left behind. Some of the spots I walk into are long hikes back in. I remember meeting you at the pheasant hunt but don't remember where you are located. I would gladly meet up with you sometime and show mine to you if you wanted to see it an use it.

Good to see this under 20 lb tree stand in business and apparently expanding.
It allows a hunter to better go deep and change tree sites during a day of hunting. Good for the hunter who wants to carry in and take his stand out of the woods every day, to avoid poachers. Of course, that assumes and requires a certain amount of physical fitness and not every hunter is as fit or even under 200 lbs.

It has a 300lb rate weighting and weight is 12lbs.

Mus42-I dont get your comment of being under 200 lbs and going in deep. I weigh around 240. I will bet that we have some spots that most people would not walk into to rifle hunt let alone archery hunt.

Thanks for the info. I remember meeting you at the pheasant hunt as well. Maybe when the weather warms up, I will take you up on your offer. I am not far from Pittsburgh.

Just saw the release from the ATA that the loc on stand will weigh 10lbs and the climbing sticks weigh 2.5lbs per section. Looks like the will have a very lightweight blind as well.

I will gladly meet up with both of you in the spring. I know there are not many place carrying them right now locally. I like the fact though that the stuff I am buying is direct from them.

i have used many top name trestands and i wouldnt trade my x-stand for any other. it has everything you need....a base....and a seat. rock solid in the tree. i have done numerous all day sits in mine, i wont say its the most comfortable stand out there, but it isntbad at all.

This stand looks awfully cumbersome to pack into the woods. I understand its light but it seems like those arms and cables would get caught alot on branches etc. Do you guys that own one have any problems with this ?

The way it sits on my back the cables are not above my head. I have no issues at all with them catching on anything.

Best mobile setup I have found and I have been looking, buying and trading for a long time to find it.

Lone wolf assault or LocOn Limit
Eberlestcok X2 With Butt Bucket attachment(Put the stand in it)
4 Lone Wolf Sticks Carried in Hand

I take a climber only when I know for certain the right trees are there and I need to go high due to lack of cover. Sure I could go high with my light setup but I would need more sticks.

I'll stick with the Summit Specialist SD. I can handle 14 lbs for the quality and design.

Another reason to support X-stand as they have pulled out of the ESOS for our 2nd amendment rights!
