Climbing tree stand preference
« on: September 25, 2008, 09:38:51 PM »
Another vote here for the Austin Outdoors Supermag!
If you are an all day hunter, this is the stand for you.
your choice of facing toward or away from the tree, shooting rail that can drop out of the way for archery, secure tie down for the stand once you are in position!

And GREAT support, 3 years ago I had a Bear damage my stand the night before our archery opener, I called Robert Burns at Austin Outdoors, he had the parts to repair the stand in my hand on Monday, I missed one day of hunting out of the stand.
Robert, if you are on this site, THANKS AGAIN!!!!

I had posted in another post several months ago about these Austin outdoors Supermag treestands and they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. I bought one last year after seeing them at a big buck expo in Lakeland, FL and they are awesome. They are a bit expensive but are the best climber I have ever used.  www.supermagstands.com

I have 2 climbing stands that I use. I use a Summit when I have a long distance to walk into where I will setup. It is comfortable for a few hours of sitting, and is light to carry.
I use a Tree Lounge for shorter distances to carry (It is heavier than the Summit), but VERY comfortable to sit in for all day long hunts.
Both stands are easy to climb with, as well as very safe.

I use a Lone Wolf Alpha Climber. I love the ease of set up but it is not the most compfortable stand on the market. I'm thinking about getting a Summit, now those look like an all day stand.

fl,I checked out the website and it looks to be a nice stand. How secure is the back rest and arm rails? How big and small of a tree will this fit around?

WV, I feel that is very secure. I was/am a big man 6' 2" formerly 300 pounds now 255 pounds. I am uncomfortable in a lot of climbers and this thing I feel totaly safe. It is light but man is it solid. It will fit a wide variety of tree circumfrances. I really do love this stand.
