check around pawn shops, but also look on craigslist or golsn. There's usually lots of stuff like that on there.

btw, I have a summit goliath and I absolutely looooove that thing. I'm gonna try to save up a little $ and get one of the full wrap around seats for it before this gun season when temps drop off. If not this season I will next year anyway.


Try one out first!!!!! Not to sound mean or anything like that, but if your a bigger man, you will hate it. I am 185 and my brother has one on his summit, during bow season I fit comfortably, after its cold I am in there so tight its very unconfortable and I dont wear tons of clothes. Just that lil extra layer or two wedges me in there like a can of sardines. I chose to stay away from that seat.

Thanks for the info. I wouldn't have even thought about that. I'm around 6'1" @ 210 so that may be an issue. Preciate it!

I just ordered a Viper SS from Amazon. 239.00 free 2 day shipping. I'm about 15 lbs short of weight rating. Time to diet I guess lol.

I have heard of people not paying attention to the weight rating and getting in trouble with that; be safe.

Don't assume, as I did the ratings had some wiggle room, they do not.


They should have been designed with a factor of safety just like anything else. Guess TMA doesn't require them to under rate their products. I've been eyeballing a Titan but just can't make myself spend the money...
