Rated 3 out of 5 by Michael53 This is a very tall stand
I hunt out of mostly 20' tree stands and this is my first 20' Tripod. I bought this stand over other comparable tripods because of the size of the base and top ring 48” and 54” respectively. This I figure gives me a lot more room to comfortably sit for most of a day. The alternate tripods I looked and considered were significantly smaller – like the API Ultra-Steel 20’ deluxe.
This stand is very tall and fairly complicated to put together - nothign is marked. I spent an hour or so laying out, grouing and labeling parts. I then put the top part of the stand together myself in my shop - platform base, seat, rail, first set of legs/ladder, and then with two buddies finished assembling in the field at the location we were setting it up. I had preassembled and marked the various braces – there are a lot of them – 9 sets I believe – to make it easier to assemble in the field. It was a challenge getting everything together just right – with two legs on the ground, the opposite legs it pretty high up requiring us to get a small stepladder – even for my 6’ buddy.
Once assembled, standing this stand up proved to be a challenge - we stood it up with the two legs on the ground and the ladder in the air, with a very long and strong rope running from the base of the seat, up the ladder to a tree limb. It was all the three of us could do to get it standing it – it’s just so darn high.
My main concern with the stand beyond assembling is that once we had it in position and leveled, the stand is extremely wobbly – even with all of the braces. Fortunately, I had brought 3, 3 foot long anchors that screw into the ground with 16’ ratchet straps that I then used to securely anchor the tripod in 3 different directions. We screwed the anchors in all of the 3’ then used the ratchet straps to get as high on the stand as we could. I wish I had thought to bring 20’ ratchet straps since anchoring to the base would have helped even more.
With the three ratchet straps firmly attached and tight, the stand was significantly more stable. I am sure I would not use it without these.
I also purchased the blind (material wrap) that attaches to the top of the stand and I additionally added a top to the stand for rain/snow – it’s like tent material with tent like fiberglass cross bars – very light. Adding the braces for the top ring risers (1/2 square tubing 3’ long) added additional stability to the stand.
Now that the stand is up and stabilized I am happy with it, but I can tell you, it is not going to get moved – the base of the three legs is large – probably 8’ across. This would make it tough to move.
In hindsight I might have preferred teh Ultra-Steel.
