I am in the market for a new climber. The three I have narrowed it down to are
A. Summit Viper
B. API Grand Slam Extreme
3. Lone Wolf Alpha Sit and Climb

These three are the ones that were the most comfortable, when I tried them at the store.

I would like to get your opinions, which one you prefer in the field.
I am looking for one that is easy to use, stable(sitting and standing), and comfortable for all day hunting.

Thanks

I have owned all three of the stands you listed. each one worked well. Api was too heavy.it was very stable once locked on a tree. the lone wolf was light. the belt would roll up on the barkin the back as you climb up . summit is the best so far. the only improvement on my summit would to make it adjustable to the tapper of the tree as you climb. I tried a timbertall. it is light. the adjustment system is good but very noisey..
hope this helps.
