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.

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...

I have a Summit 180. You can face the tree or have your back to the tree. Love it ! But be sure to get a good nights rest cause it'll put u to sleep. Think i paid about $280 a few years ago. Well worth it.
Btw- what kind of dirtbag steals other people's stands ? Wouldn't do for me to catch em in the act.

I sat in one of the Summit Viper stands last year, and realy loved it. I have an old old climber that is heavy and very uncomfortable. I would love to get me one of the Summits, but on my salary, they are just to darn high. If anyone has one they would like to sell, or has another climber like it, pm me, i would be interested in buying it off of ya.


I own one summitt and one alum. model from Dicks sport goods and i absolutely love it. what ever you buy dont skimp on the price of a light weight Aluminum model whick usually is around 21#s.. that extra savings in weight is one regret you will never have. It has to be light to make it truly a bargain.
