I've bought just about all of the big name stands and theres only one I will own from now on and thats API. They can be purchased exclusively through Basspro and nothing grips a tree like they do. They have all day comfort and peace of mind whille up the tree. You can buy lighter stands and I have but when it comes to being able to grip any bark type and allow you to stand and move around with out the stand moving these are the way to go. They had a re-call a few years back because walmart wanted them to cheapen the stand they sold in their stores, they did and it resulted in failures so now they only sell through basspro and the stands are safer than anything out there in my opinion because you have a pin going through a chain to secure it to the tree. Not a piece of plastic gripping an oversized fan belt.
