Natchez usually has really, really good prices, particularly in the off-season.  I got a two man ladder really cheap and am very happy with it.  Delivery was prompt, too.  Ordered it on a Monday and was unpacking and assembling it on Saturday.

I have been using climbers since 1973 when the Baker tree stands were about you could buy. ( I am sure some of you older hunters like me remember those death traps) I want a climber that is quiet, holds the tree well and doesn't slip and is very comfortable. If you are going to sit 30 feet up a pine tree all day padded seats,back and arm rest are the only to go. This is just my two cents worth...   Good Luck.

I got a Summit razor and love it, not on the cheap side but its light, quiet and well made.

I've also been using climbers for quite some time, I saw the new Summit's at a show, tried it there and loved it.
I bought a 180 ss climber from Cabela's took it out climbed a tree (with my safety harness on) and found it quiet and comfortable, adjustable seat height, back rest, etc.. the only problem I have with it is the RapidClimb stirrups, they do not seem to work as well as they advertise, I had made many adjustments, sliding them from the front of the platform to the back and haven't yet found that sweet spot. Other than that,its a good product.

I bought a new Summitt Viper SS because the wife liked the looks of it.
Turns out its a pretty nice stand.

From my readings Summit appears to make all around nice stands.

Keep an eye on the sales going on at Sportsmans Guide and you can buy a decent climbing stand at a good price,if you join the Sportsmans Guide Club you get another 10% off the regular prices and it is worth it if you plan on buying a few items within a years time.If you don't have a SG magazine you can go to their web site also.
