Rated 4 out of 5 by MSbigDeerhunter Good stand but...
I have a few of two man stands and I have to say that this one is one of the better ones that I have purchased. It is stable, roomy and the backrest anchored back against the tree makes it really comfortable. Only two problems that I have with it. First, the expanded metal used for the platform (which is a great size for a 2 person stand) is not sturdy enough. I weigh over 200 pounds and the back half of the platform does give quite a bit and creaks when standing on it with the seat folded up. Second, the two sling seats are separated by a support that is welded between the front and rear portions of the frame. If you are hunting in the stand alone and want to sit in the middle of the seat, the support gets rather uncomfortable as the sling seats do sink enough that your rear comes in contact with the support. I plan to add a cushion the full width of the seat to help address that problem. Other than that the stand is great!

I found that it looked great in the picture, but it was the hardest stand to put together. The instruction book was incomplete with pictures, also the bolts were confuseing/no pictures of them either. It took 2 hours to get it assembled and into the tree, but in the end I couldnt get the seat assembly together. The seat is a sling style which seemed to be smaller than the needed, so do to the time of year (RUT) we went without a seat this year. My wife bought it for us to sit in, and since the is no seat, she won't go near it. For some of you hunters, it might be good, but then get a less expensive stand, then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigfishken Great for ONE person!
This is a great ladder stand BUT for one person, not two...just so so for two people. I'm not being critical of this stand in particular, just ladder stands in general. This one is as good as a ladder stand can be iand better than most in my opinion. Its safe so long as you use a safety harness and strong as can be. One person using this stand can turn in most any direction for a shot...not true if two people are in it or if its a one person stand. i don't believe ladder stands should be built so narrow as to seat only one person because of the inability of a hunter to turn in most any direction for a well-placed shot.
